Robertson still disappointed at last season’s curtailment

Stewart Robertson, Rangers director, has sent another harsh attack along Hampden bosses’ way, revealing he is still furious after seven months of last season being curtailed.

The

Rangers 

were raged with anger when their bitter rivals

Celtic

were chosen the winners based on a points-per-game due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Neil Doncaster, CEO of Scottish Professional Football League, was the main target of their anger and frustration, saying he lacked governing qualities according to

Stewart Robertson

.

I think we were all disappointed with the way the 2019/20 season was curtailed early

,” said Robertson.

The fashion that happened left a really sour taste in the mouth to be honest.

“It’s been well publicised what our views on that were. We as a club were keen to get the games played. We’d have much rather got the games played to a conclusion as they did in England and most other European countries.

“However, that path was never really made available to us. I feel some clubs accepted that path a bit too quickly and if we’d tried a bit harder, maybe we’d have got there.

“We didn’t and eventually there came a point when it was obvious, we weren’t going to get there.

“However, that doesn’t detract that I believe and the club believes that the governance of the game in Scotland has to be better than what we’re getting at the moment, has to be better than we got in the summer. I think it could be significantly better in the way that the game is run.

“We all want to be displaying the best product we possibly can and showing Scottish football in its best light and I don’t think we’re doing that right now. There’s a lot of improvements that could be made on that side of it.

“It needs to start with the way the authorities govern the game. We were very vocal about it in the summer. We feel exactly the same now as we did then and we’re still chipping away at it.”

Among the clubs backing Gers’ proposal on considering Doncaster’s crisis handling abilities, were Stranraer and Hearts. Robertson is urging other clubs as well as Celtic to speak up.

He said: “

We hear from many other clubs who express their dissatisfaction with the way things are being done but they need to believe in the courage of their convictions and actually come out and support and be a bit more vocal if they really want to see change.

“Otherwise it’s going to be inertia, it’s going to be mediocrity and we’re just going to get the same over and over. It’s key for us that we try to improve the governance.”
