Glasgow Rangers are far from happy after the Scottish FA confirmed that Andrew Phillips will take over as the organisation’s new compliance officer.
As the Gers sit top of the Premiership by 15 points (BBC), it is fair to say it has been a fantastic campaign for the Gers so far. However, that does not mean they have not had their problems with the SFA this term – both Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe has received bans for challenges made during games, while Jordan Jones and George Edmundson picked up seven-game suspensions for breaking coronavirus regulations towards the end of 2021.
Now, the authority have confirmed Phillips will take over the role previously held by Claire Whyte (scottishfa.co.uk). While little is known about Phillips, it appears he has little background in football – his appointment has therefore gone down like a lead balloon.
Are you happy with this appointment?
The fans took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the appointment of Phillips below
“The @ScottishFA are an absolute joke!!! I doubt this guy has had any football experience apart from being a fan of a club!!! You have basically appointed a fan to this position who does not know the game!!!”
“Ridiculous appointment. Should have been an ex referee”
“They’d do well to get rid of the role altogether, what an absolute shambles, but we expect nothing else”
“Consider me confused. Should this role not go to someone with a background in football? I mean there’s millions of people in Scotland with a passion for football too.”
“Bizarre CV for a footballing role.”
“What part of Parkhead is his Season Ticket for?”
