Stop caring about recognition globally when nobody cares. Football in Scotland has a very harsh graph when you consider financial state of clubs and interest from fans. We go through periods of clubs splashing the cash (many going bust) and fans of non-OF enjoy this period as it gives a sense of “we might be going somewhere here”. However, reality kicks in as Celtic sign a £9m striker and Rangers get back to being the 2nd force. Then collectively all fans in Scotland consider what’s the point of spending £400 on a ST when the odds are stacked against you. Then Celtic and Rangers fans get fed up as their club keeps getting knocked out of Europe. Then we have clubs that find out they have spent too much and “x club goes out of business” headlines will appear once more. It goes in cycles. Every club seems to take turns being financially challenged after a period of “lavish” finances.
Scottish football is dominated too much by greed. Greed in football is bad everywhere as it is but it’s much worse here due to the lack of resources which means clubs take a “let’s do what is best for us and forget about the rest” stance. Clubs will vote selfishly in most cases. OF clubs especially. There should be a rule forcing clubs to play youth in the top league.
