Kieran Maguire seethes after Uefa's 'scandalous' Man City announcement
It is scandalous that Man City and their Super League coconspirators have escaped without punishment from Uefa.
So says finance boffin Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Uefa announced the U-turn on 27 September.
European football’s governing body have scrapped proceedings against the remaining Super League clubs, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus.
In turn, the other nine Super League teams will also escape financial punishment for their roles in the plot.
City were originally ordered to pay a £1.4million fine and surrender five per cent of their earnings from a season in European competition.
But the Premier League champions have instead got away scot-free and that is an injustice, according to an incensed Maguire.

“It’s scandalous,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“But there are different rules that apply to high net worth individuals and organisations in society.
“I think this is reflective of that. Also, I think Uefa have got bigger fish to fry. Their big fear is Super League coming back.
“The reason they have taken the actions they have done is they think it makes Super League less likely to return. But it will return, in some form.
“They are trying to get all their ducks in a row ahead in the interim ahead of getting a test case at the European Court of Justice.
“That of course won’t affect us in any case as we left the European Union.”
