John Brown wades into Rangers turmoil, Vladimir Romanov suspected of £12m embezzlement, Hibs poll woe for Pat Fenlon, and more.

Bomber hits out at Green

Former Rangers hero John Brown is worried that Rangers could go bust again, and blames Charles Green for much of the in-fighting which threatens to tear the club apart.

The Dundee manager also expressed anger at Green’s comments regarding Ally McCoist. Bomber said: “Green’s comments were a disgrace. If my own directors had said that about me, I would have taken every one of them by the throat. You can have that in a private room but not in public.” (Scotsman)

Romanov in embezzlement claims

Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov is suspected of large-scale embezzlement, involving around £12 million, at Ukio Bankas, say Lithuanian prosecutors.

He is wanted in Lithuania for questioning over alleged crimes that, if he was convicted, would see him jailed for up to seven years. (Edinburgh Evening News)

Hibs fans vote against Fenlon

Hibs fans have said in an online poll that the time has come for boss Pat Fenlon to quit, after a run of disappointing results.

The Easter Road side have had an increasing amount of misery piled upon them lately and even saw Fenlon booed off after their opening defeat on Sunday. The poll showed 68% wanted Fenlon to go. (Daily Express)

MacDonald anger at ref

Hearts keeper Jamie MacDonald says referee Stevie MacLean cost the club a point on Sunday, as he believes that St Johnstone’s David Wotherspoon was offside when Stevie May scored the only goal of the game.

MacLean over-ruled a linesman’s offside call and was questioned on it by Gary Locke at half-time. Various)

Killie eye Nicholson

Allan Johnston is hoping to strengthen up his midfield with the addition of Barry Nicholson to Kilmarnock.

Nicholson had been training with St Johnstone but wasn’t offered a deal, so now Killie look set to swoop. (Various)
