Football Notes: Scottish Rangers Fans Step Up Bid To Force Boardroom Change
Scottish League 1 Rangers fans "stepped up their bid to force through boardroom change" on Saturday with a "protest during the 2-0 win over Dunfermline." The Union of Fans "urged fellow supporters to hold blue cards aloft if they wanted to support former Ibrox director Dave King’s attempt to force change." Around 30,000 "responded to the call" (Scotland DAILY RECORD, 3/16). ... Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has "dismissed a recent report on 2022 FIFA World Cup projects by the International Trade Union Confederation" as "factually inaccurate" and a "deliberate attempt to discredit the Committee." In a statement on Saturday, the committee "strongly denied the allegations levelled in the report, saying none had died on World Cup projects in Qatar" (THE PENINSULA, 3/16). ... Romanian football club Dinamo Bucharest "has been put up for sale." Dinamo Owner Ionut Negoita is "currently negotiating the sale of a majority share" in the club (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 3/13).
