SFL President Brown McMaster made the following ridiculous statement yesterday:
"If [Livingston had] appealed in due time, we'd have put the three games off, there's no question of that. But there comes a point when we need to make a call."we've done our best to avoid fixture chaos. Mr McGruther was asked he (was certain he) could fulfil all 36 fixtures in the First Division next season and he said, 'No'." We thought the lowest risk was to have them in the Third Division."
"The circumstances are slightly worse that they were with Hamilton. This has been a calculated decision by the people in charge, by Donald McGruther, who's the club interim manager."
