Hearts and Hibs invited to SPFL meeting as six furious clubs demand answers after scathing criticism



Several Premiership clubs, including Aberdeen, Motherwell, Livingston, Rangers, St Johnstone, and St Mirren, have expressed their dissatisfaction with the SPFL’s governance and transparency. They have raised concerns over the independence of an independent report commissioned by the league. This report came after the SPFL faced a legal challenge from Rangers regarding a sponsorship deal, leading to a public apology from the league and payment of costs.

In response to the clubs’ concerns, the SPFL has asserted that the criticisms contained “factual inaccuracies” which have been addressed. However, the discontent among the clubs persists.

To address these issues, all SPFL clubs, including Hearts, Hibs, Edinburgh City, Spartans, and Bonnyrigg Rose, have been invited to a meeting scheduled for February 27th. The meeting aims to facilitate discussions between club representatives and SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan and chief executive Neil Doncaster.

In a joint statement, the six clubs initiating the meeting emphasized the importance of transparency and governance in the league. They believe it is essential for the chairman and chief executive to engage directly with the clubs’ shareholders to address concerns raised regarding the Independent Governance Review.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at 11:00 am on February 27, 2024, with all SPFL member clubs encouraged to participate and contribute to the discussions.
