SPFL claims it has addressed ‘factual inaccuracies’ in letter from six clubs



The Scottish Professional Football League has responded to concerns raised by six top-flight clubs regarding its recent governance review. Following a three-month investigation by financial accountants Henderson Loggie, Aberdeen, Motherwell, Livingston, St Johnstone, and St Mirren, alongside Rangers, expressed significant reservations in an open letter to the SPFL regarding the handling of the report.

A spokesperson for the SPFL confirmed the receipt of the letter on behalf of the six Premiership clubs, noting that it contained several factual inaccuracies. The SPFL has since addressed these inaccuracies with the concerned clubs. The spokesperson also stated that discussions regarding the recommendations of the independent governance review will take place with all Premiership clubs in the near future, once the necessary process has been completed.

The SPFL issued a statement in response to a letter from six clubs.
In response to a letter from six clubs, the SPFL issued a statement addressing concerns raised regarding the independence, transparency, and overall governance of the organization. The clubs had asserted that there were issues with the report’s independence and transparency, as well as with the conduct of SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan. They claimed that MacLennan had released a statement that did not accurately represent the full findings of the report, without the approval or knowledge of members of the SPFL board or member clubs. Additionally, the clubs accused the SPFL executive of making alterations to the report before presenting it to the board members.

The investigation in question was initiated last summer after the league issued an apology to Rangers following a protracted dispute concerning its primary sponsorship deal.
