Paul McBride QC Can't Post or Reply Privately

The SFA are not suing Paul McBride QC for his comments about them. In an interview with BBC Scotland, he had described the organisation as "the laughing stock of world football" and said the SFA "had been shown to be not merely dysfunctional and not merely dishonest but biased." Although he has expressed regret for the offence caused by his comments, he has neither apologised for them, nor retracted them. He is now quoted as saying:

"In the course of an interview given to BBC Scotland on April 12, 2011, I made a number of remarks which followed the decision made at the disciplinary hearing involving Rangers FC players and their assistant manager.

"Following discussions with the Scottish Football Association, I recognise that offence has been taken to my remarks by the Scottish Football Association as an organisation, its council and its staff, and for that I express regret.

"I have a lot of respect for many individuals within the SFA, not least Stewart Regan.

So he must still hold those views. Shocked
