Best punishment for Newco ?

Now that we finally know as that RFC (Deceased) where guilty of running side contract relating to EBT’s the time has come to work out the punnishment.
The SPL will meet on July 4th to decide if Charles Greens carcus of a club will be allowed to Join the SPL.  After that the SPL will impose sanctions on the Newco.
Punishments available are :

 From STV :The full list of sanctions available to the SPL are a warning, a reprimand, a fine, the annulment of an official match, ordering a match is replayed, a points deduction, the award of an official match to an opponent, ordering games to be played behind closed doors, stadium closure, expulsion from the league, the withdrawal of a title or award, ordering compensation to be paid, a signing embargo and/or any other punishment the SPL board sees fit.

I suggest a suitable punishment would be to reject Newco’s entry into the SPL then strip titles, cups etc won by the old company and present them to the runners up in the competitions where RFC played players on side contracts. The SFA should then accept them as a totally new club with no ties to the past e.g. no adoption of previous titles, cups etc.  Then leave the newco to apply for member ship of SFL division three as an entirely new entity.
This to me seems a fair and reaonable punishment which will satisfy football fans and underpin the integrity of our game. It will also allow a fresh start for a new club starting at year zero. Then they can legitimately work their way back up through the leagues to the SPL.
Hopefully if an entirely new club can start a fresh they can leave behind their sectarian past and promotion of pro unionist politics. In other words just be another football club concentrating on winning trophies and entertaining supporters.

  1. this is exactly what i have been calling for, its the ONLY reasonable way forward, tho to be fair i would suspend them from football for a year too as punishment for breaking the rules again by taking the matter to the court of session. As long as they are arrogantly thrying to bully their way back without as much as an appology then we need to be tough on them or whats to stop them doing this again

  3. Put simply…they are a disgrace of a new-co waste dump and should only be allowed to ever play football again…with their players each wearing – a bell around their scrawny necks for a whole season. Then each time the bell rings it will remind everyone what a load of cheating rat-bags they were and still are.

  5. It is easy to go with death penalty as a true fit. That is too easy. I like the idea of seeing them stripped of all titles and acknowledgements, and then banished to the 3rd Division. Let them work their way back the proper way. The agony and embarrassment of that playing level should do the trick.

  7. The lesser appelate case could see them barred from football. I would suggest 12 seasons of cheating, making millions off the back of non adherance to strict competition rules in SFA/SPL and Uefa tournaments should see them at least kicked out of Scottish football for a season (not that they have players) and Uefa will add another 5 years ban for European competition. They should not get an SFA license.
