And who said Scottish football was shite.....well it is but interestingly shite.So just heard from a mate who has been working in Scottish football for years for various clubs and here’s where the rumours are today:
Dundee were going to vote No to stick it to Dundee Utd as they’d get promoted to the Premier League. They made this intention clear on socials media. Then somehow, their vote never happened.
For years now, Celtic have been working with Dundee to try to get a Dundee v Celtic match moved to the USA, specifically Boston. Celtic see this is a chance to have a match in a full NFL or College Football stadium. The USA football authorities have blocked this on the grounds that it would open the door for other teams to do the same and damage the MLS brand.
However, there can still be friendlies there. The rumour now is that Celtic have again offered Dundee a series of annual friendlies in the USA in exchange for changing their vote to Yes, which would probably lead to Celtic being awarded the league title. But would also lead to Dundee Utd being promoted. Dundee now deciding if a few lucrative friendlies outweighs promoting their main rivals.
Loads of infighting and rumours up here about all this. The Caley CEO voted No and stated if he had voted Yes it would have been self serving. However, he’s a Rangers fan who used to work for Hearts, so certainly doesn’t want one losing the league and the other relegated. Also, do Caley want Hearts in their league vying for promotion next season? No.
Still a while to run on this.
