    Thanks for the update to this EJ. Can you say if the cash confirmer identity is something that will be announced publicly or are we to assume compliance ?

    Dear Mr Bankier

      Does anyone know the answers to the following in terms of the rules:

      1. Whether players playing for Scottish clubs can be wholly or partly owned by a third party?

      2. Whether players playing for Scottish clubs can have their wages paid in part or in full by a third party?

      3. Whether a third party can benefit financially from the sale of players playing for a Scottish club?


    It's interesting insomuch as a player contracted to a club and wholly owned by that club might be less prone to external influences on his game play and attitude. I accept that agents can still agigtate and speak to 'their' player but this is less binding than ownership per se.I think the EPL are dead against it but how effectively it is policed I dont know.You might try contacting the SFA at registrations@scottishfa.co.uk..I understand they are striving for transparency at every level.

    Thanks for the link trp. I was unaware that the SFA went in to bat for Ajax over the sectarian banner charge nor that it is the tune itself that Uefa insist is sectarian and not just the lyrics of the Billy Boys. So forty thousand fans humming the tune would still be enough to close the stadium.Wonder how they would treat the Dundee choir should they qualify to play in their tournaments.The article does highlight the difference in approach to sectarianism from Uefa and the Scottish football authorities.One is actively trying to eradicate and educate while the other appears to be shrugging it's shoulders.

    It's interesting that the discussion point of the match seems focussed on a Celtic player claiming to score. See Craigey…whats he like. The Celtic player may well be on a goal bonus so I can see why he might want to claim he scored.Hearts have their own issues currently and it looks like a handy deflection from a seasoned SPFL manager.

    Oh and I don't think Bayo scored BTW.

    Accountability via Transparency.
    The lack of action by the  SFA on the continued sectarian chanting/incursions/pyrotechnics etc is being brought into sharp focus by Derek McInnes's understandable emotional reaction to the incessant taunting endured as he watched his game plan disintegrate.It has to be pointed out though that Celtic have been proactive in partial ground closure and it is good to see Hearts taking a similar stand.To some the Celtic statement is whataboutery, to my mind it is laced with a sense of frustration at the silence of the authorities on these matters for such a long a time.
