Michael Brown has torn into the “uncertainty” caused by the ongoing feud between Rangers and the SPFL.
The former Premier League midfielder, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, claims the Gers’ accusations and demands for an external investigation have brought an unnecessary air of negativity to Scottish football.
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.
Managing director Stewart Robertson said their whistleblower’s information would be provided this week after accusing the governing body of “bullying and coercion”.
Rangers have called for an independent inquiry into the SPFL after the controversial resolution ballot which saw Dundee rescind their initial vote to support the SPFL’s season-ending proposal.
Brown insists that Scottish football is facing financial turmoil, highlighting the issues faced by Hearts, and that the Gers should be focused on improving their squad rather than attacking the league’s chiefs.
Brown told Football Insider: “I just don’t really know what to say. It’s something that’s on up there but I just think it’s not the right kind of spin we need at the moment.
“We need a bit of positivity going on in the league, all this stuff, the investigations, stuff like that, they’ve got enough on their plate.
“From the footballing side of things, Rangers have got to do improve the squad, Celtic are looking to do the same and I know it’s not just those two. They just don’t need the uncertainty because it’s at a real tipping point of financials at the moment.
“We’ve seen Hearts struggling and I just think it’s not ideal.”
Rangers have called for the suspension of both chief executive Neil Doncaster and legal adviser Rod MacKenzie after the botched resolution process.
The bottom three tiers of Scottish football have all been ended immediately while the Premiership is suspended indefinitely.
