    Nice touch from Romanov to mention the supporters, although some of the other stuff he said seems unfounded.

    Yep it is. I know that there are some clubs that have let their fans decide how they should vote, including Caley and Motherwell.

    Apparently the SFA want to do a deal where we are voted back into the SPL, but then relegated into division one straight away. The SFL were discussing it yesterday at an emergency meeting.

    Division 1 is on Fifa next year funnily enough. Pointless though, will just be 10 half star teams. Laughing

    It could be a misunderstanding or wind up because this is the only source I can find.

    It was a good statement, in particular these parts

    Mr Vladimir Romanov today issued the following statement after recent revelations that have had a hugely damaging affect on the game in this country.

    Mr Romanov, who has been consistent in his views since investing in Scottish football in 2005, said:

    "The opinion of Heart of Midlothian FC in regards to the current situation of Scottish football is clear and robust.

    "The football mafia represented by former owners of Rangers FC and Rupert Murdoch's media are to blame for some of the worst problems to hit Scottish football and must not be allowed back in under any circumstances.

    "As regards the club itself, we can only express our deepest condolences to its supporters, who have been lied to for so many years.

    "It had to happen sooner or later. Victories were achieved not by sporting merits, but through slander, conspiracies amongst players and their poaching via third parties, unfair pressuring of referees, who in themselves are as valuable to the fabric of football as the football stars themselves.

    "All of this brought hollow victories and destroyed football. We can also mention the attempts to eliminate Hearts with the help of the tax petitions, through false accusations and threats to revoke the club license. There is a saying about digging a grave for someone: you get it for yourself.

    "Without these people football will become cleaner and stronger. Without Murdoch the whole of society will improve, in particular sport and culture.

    "Supporters deserve a new beginning and have to accept the fact that their club has to start from the lower league, keeping order in the SPL and without creating unfair competition with other clubs.

    "As regards the pitiful state of Scottish football finances, a lot of the blame should be placed at the doors of Murdoch's media. They pay huge sums to English clubs, whilst in Scotland, where football is better supported per capita than anywhere else in Europe and there are more cable or Sky subscribers per capita than in England, clubs receive peanuts for their broadcasting rights.

    "At the very least this is discrimination and protectionism for the English football product, which at the same time stunts the development of the game in Scotland, that is regarded as the cradle of football.

    "I feel that it is absolutely realistic to create a company that would bring to Scottish clubs at least the same broadcasting income, and even grow it by 50-100% over the next two to three years. This company should be in the hands of Scottish clubs and work with those who want to earn money the honest way, instead of conducting business the Murdoch way.

    "They have lived beyond law and all morals, and should now be declared beyond the pale. A society that allows the destruction of integrity in sport, which is a crucial part of Scottish culture, is destroying itself - and all for the benefit of a media aborigine."

    Beautiful words.

    I agree with the majority of it, but the unfair pressuring of referees? Tell me when Rangers stood out from anyone else in the SPL with respect to that.
