Lunny green lights a deluge

The message that comes out of the SFA, after the farcical carpeting of Leigh Griffiths for singing in a pub, is not just conformation of bias against Celtic nor the hypocrisy of the many other incidents, perpetrated by the likes of Andy Goram and Hearts, that went unpunished: No. What the SFA told yesterday is that YouTube footage is now taken as hard evidence.

Vincent Lunny just opened a huge can of worms.

Quite what jurisdiction the SFA think they have in the Roseburn Bar in Edinburgh is beyond me but they just ensured that anyone with a camera phone is going to take any and every opportunity to get a football player in trouble and that is a huge problem.

We live in an age where a lot of comment is passed about the gap between players and fans being akin to the Grand Canyon, we don't need any more excuses from players not to mix with the punters.

Especially when you look at the videos that show the impact players can have on the likes of young Jay Beatty.

That's the beauty of football that clubs very rarely understand but have such a huge impact on our lives.

We need more, much, much more.

In terms of Griffiths himself, I knew the club wouldn't be happy but I am glad that they filed it under "Daft Boy" and moved on.

As for Vincent Lunny? I hope he has plenty email storage.
