SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan has denied that Dundee were offered any ‘sweetener’ to change their vote over ending the lower-league season (h/t BBC Sport).
The SPFL has been mired in controversy after a vote was conducted to end the lower leagues earlier this month. This would have passed the power to the SPFL to do the same with the Scottish Premiership.
Rangers alleged wrongdoing in the voting process as it emerged that Dundee had submitted a ‘no’ vote, before changing the vote to a yes.
MacLennan released a Q&A on Wednesday to “address various accusations” made since the decision to vote on ending the lower-league season (h/t BBC Sport).
In that, MacLennan has denied that Dundee had been offered any sort of sweeteners in order to change their initial vote (h/t BBC Sport).
“At no stage was any additional commitment or ‘sweetener’ given to any club before it voted.”
MacLennan further added that any further investigation that would be launched, would only be a waste of time and finances. He called it “wholly unnecessary, inappropriate and contrary to the interests of the company.” (h/t BBC Sport)
MacLennan also criticised Rangers for not making the alleged evidence available when Deloitte were conducting the investigation (h/t BBC Sport).
