From BBC Scotland yesterday:
The delay in allowing fans to return to stadiums in Scotland is “political, rather than clinical”, say two of the country’s top football administrators. Scottish FA vice-president Mike Mulraney made the claim on BBC Radio Scotland – and was supported by SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster.
It was quite a surprising and puzzling claim so I thought I’d see if I could find any context for Mr Mulraney’s comments. There’s no sign of any political allegiance just an astonishing workload apparently. As well as being the SFA vice-president, he is the Alloa chairman, a director at The National Stadium plc, Hampden Park Stadium Ltd and a director of around 70 other companies, from Tinmonitor 1 and 2 to Intelligent Healthcare Ltd!
I’m no wiser about the supposed ‘political’ accusations and even less wise about the business world surrounding Scottish football but how has he the time to do all this?
Doncaster is ‘small beer‘ by contrast with only 2 directorships, the SFA of course and The National Stadium Sports Medicine Centre. Isn’t SPFL CE a full-time job?
