Steven Gerrard is to learn this afternoon whether he will be punished for last month’s comments on Ryan Edwards, following the farce last week when the video call software being used for the assembly of the meeting crashed repeatedly.
As is always the case in Scottish football, this country doesn’t know its backside from its elbow, and even the software used is probably alpha state, hence in yet another example of our abysmally-run game, a professional meeting is reduced to below amateur after software repeatedly crashes on the participants.
It’s almost like the app wanted to mirror the incompetence of the governing bodies of our game, and failed miserably to be fit for purpose.
As such, the meeting was pushed back to the following Monday (today) in the misguided belief the SFA or SPFL can actually organise a p*ss up in a brewery and figure out the situation without the use of crayons.
As for the charge, it’s also a farce. Gerrard didn’t accuse anyone of bias, he asked a very intelligent question about whether Morelos would have got a red card for the same thing.
It wasn’t an slander, but a rhetorical point, and to cite him on it is utterly ludicrous.
But we shall find out later today if he’ll be punished.
