'Farce' - Exclusive: Hutton reacts to Rangers whistleblower update from newspaper

Alan Hutton has urged Rangers to hand over their whistleblower’s evidence over the SPFL to rival clubs as soon as possible

The former Gers and Scotland full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, admits he wants to see the “farce” surrounding the league resolution vote put to bed after weeks of controversy.

The Scotsman report that the Light Blues have delayed their plans to reveal their “dossier of evidence” against the SPFL to the other 41 member clubs until Thursday after managing director Stewart Robertson said it would be released this week.

The Glasgow giants have accused the governing body of “bullying and coercion” in the lead-up to the resolution ballot, which saw Dundee controversially rescind their initial vote in order to support the SPFL’s proposal.

However, after weeks of public accusations, Hutton believes the situation is becoming farcical and that his old side need to reveal the evidence they claim to hold.

Hutton told Football Insider: “I think, ‘just get it out there and move on’. They’re obviously holding something, it was meant to come out today, obviously for whatever reason they’ve decided to hold off for 48 hours.

“If they’ve got something in writing that’s ironclad, 100 per cent, there’s no way you can cover it up anyway so it doesn’t really matter. I just think what’s best for Scottish football is if you let everybody know what they’ve got and then we can come to a decision after that.

“Everybody can look at it, make their own mind up and decide where to go. The longer it’s held on, the more of a farce it becomes. We need to make a decision as to where to go next with the football.

“I know the virus is going to determine it and it has to be safe, players have to be safe, but let’s get this out, let everyone know what’s going on, make up their own mind and that’s how we move forward. The longer you hold onto it, the more rumbles and grumbles it’s going to cause.” 

The bottom three tiers of the Scottish leagues have all been ended with immediate effect while the Premiership remains suspended.
