Hypocritical SFA award 3-0 win against Hibs for imperfectly registered player. 9 Oldco EBT Cups must receive the same sanction.

The fact that those who run the SFA can look themselves in the mirror handing out sanctions against Hibernian and a fine as well whilst receiving dossiers with notes stating not to worry, no stripping from retired Lords is a joke.

Hibs fielded an ineligible player, for that the requisite penalty is a 3-0 defeat, this was meted out today just as it was against Legia Warsaw all those years ago.

But when it comes to Rangers it seems that they are above the law.

Well the Old version was anyway.

As reported in the Daily Record:

Hibs have effectively been kicked OUT of the Premier Sports Cup after fielding ineligible Rocky Bushiri.

Lee Johnson ‘s side were on the verge of elimination anyway after Wednesday night’s 2-2 draw with Greenock Morton. The Championship club went ahead through Grant Gillespie’s spot-kick before Ewan henderson levelled. However, the hosts missed their first three penalties in the shoot-out, going on to lose 3-1 as ‘Ton claimed the bonus point.

That left Hibs needing Clyde to beat Falkirk this weekend in order to top the group and progress to the knock-out stages. Had the Bairns taken something from the game, then the Easter Road club would have had to rely on an unlikely set of results from various other fixtures to go their way in order to finish as one of the three best runners up. That’s all moot now however, after the sanctions imposed at an SPFL hearing this afternoon make it impossible for the capital club to qualify, regardless of what happens.

The result will be recorded as a 3-0 win to Morton – leaving Hibs on six points after four games and unable to qualify. They have also been slapped with a £5,000 fine with £4,000 suspended. Bushiri, who has been named by the SPFL, took the pitch against Morton when they were meant to be serving a suspension in the competition. The SPFL slapped the club with a charge and the outcome was announced after the Hampden hearing.

Rangers won 5 League titles with players who were incorrectly registered, they also won 4 Scottish Cups and 5 League Cups.

On todays evidence, the 9 Cup titles should be awarded to the runners up and the 5 Premiership titles declared null and void.

Some will say there is no appetite for stripping, with Lawwell away, maybe Nicholson should use his new position to enquire as to what the difference between Hibs and Oldco Rangers actually is?
