Glasgow Rangers were raging when the Scottish football season was cancelled last month.
The SPFL found themselves in hot water after they announced that the top four leagues were called off on the grounds it was no longer safe to continue. Despite their protestations, the Gers’ fiercest rivals Celtic won the Scottish Premiership, and Hearts were relegated.
Rangers were never going to take it lying down and the Ibrox outfit accused the governing body on the charges of corruption, even demanding an inquiry into their actions, but this was dismissed by Neil Doncaster.
Now, SPFL secretary Iain Blair has warned clubs will have to work with a busy schedule in the 2020/21 season.
The veteran administrator fears matches could be cancelled as a result of adverse weather conditions.
However, supporters will no doubt be exasperated the fixture list hasn’t been released yet.
Scotland manager Steve Clarke will not be given extra time he wants to train his squad ahead of some big games later this year.
Naturally, many RFC fans slammed the SPFL’s “excuses,” with one supporter tweeting the warning is “embarrassing,” and another adding it is “ridiculous.” Several still bitterly remember the 2007/08 season, where Rangers came close to winning the UEFA Cup during a huge fixture pile-up.
Scroll through some of the scathing reactions so far…
