'I want to know the truth'- Exclusive: Hutton in Celtic claim after Rangers whistleblower update

Alan Hutton has urged teams across Scotland including Celtic to back Rangers in their push for an independent investigation into the SPFL.

The former Gers and Scotland full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, claims clubs with any sort of doubt over the resolution process should support an inquest to fully resolve the situation.

Rangers have been locked in a war of words with the SPFL after Dundee controversially changed their vote over how the season should end in Scotland.

The Light Blues claim to have evidence and proof of clubs being “bullied” into supporting the SPFL’s proposal to end the season early.

Along with Stranraer and Hearts, the Glasgow giants have requisitioned an extraordinary general meeting between all 42 SPFL clubs, with the BBC reporting there will be a ballot held in May over an independent examination of the resolution process.

Hutton believes that the Gers’ evidence must be of significant worth for them to have been so adamant in their demands and suggests other clubs should support the push.

Hutton told Football Insider: “They obviously have some sort of information that’s going to impact it because you wouldn’t go this hard if they didn’t, if that makes sense.

“Me personally, if I was at a different club, I would back the Rangers push, not just because I’m a Rangers fan but because if you had a little bit of doubt in your mind, wouldn’t you want to know the truth?

“I would want to know the truth so why not have somebody from the outside come in, go through everything and then decided. Then it’s done fairly, whatever the outcome, perfect, and we can move on.

“I think that’s the easiest way and hopefully people will back it.”
