STEWART ROBERTSON has urged SPFL clubs to show 'courage of their convictions' as he repeated his calls for major changes in the way our game is governed.

The Rangers Managing Director was the forefront of the push for an overhaul at Hampden earlier this year following the controversial manner in which the 2019/20 campaign was brought to a close.

Robertson addressed Rangers shareholders at their virtual Annual General Meeting on Tuesday and updated supporters on the club's stance following their ultimately unsuccessful calls for change last term.

Robertson said: "I think we were all disappointed in the way the 2019/20 season was curtailed early, and the fashion in which that happened left a really sour taste in the mouth to be honest.

"It has been well-publicised what our views on that were. I think we, as a club, were keen to try and get the games played.

"We would much rather have got the games played to a conclusion as they did in England and in most other European countries.

"However, that path was never really made available to us. I felt some clubs accepted that path too quickly and if we had tried a bit harder, maybe we could have got there.

"Eventually, there came a point where it was obvious we weren't going to get there.

"However, that doesn't detract from, and I believe, and the club believes, that the governance of the game in Scotland has to be better than we are getting at the moment and it has to be better than it was in the summer.

"I think it could be significantly better the way the game can be run. We all want to be displaying the best product we possibly can and showing Scottish football - our national game in its best light.

"I don't think we do that just now and there are a lot of improvements which can be made on that side of it.

"But it needs to start with the way the game is governed, and the way the authorities govern the game.

"We were very vocal about it in the summer and we feel exactly the same way about it now as we did then, and we are still chipping away at it.

"What I feel, and we hear from many other clubs who have expressed their dissatisfaction with the way things are done, is they need to believe in the courage of their convictions and come out and support and be a bit more vocal if they really want to see change.

"Otherwise, there is going to be inertia, there is going to be mediocrity and we are just going to get the same over and over. It is key for us we try and improve that governance."
