It was in 1987 that Jim Leishman coined the phrase "We have sold an ace to buy four Kings". It was a reference to the transfer of midfield star Ian McCall to Rangers for a fee of £250,000.
We older fans are wondering if History is repeating itself as we come blinking into the sunlight of a new dawn after a very dark period indeed.
The only way is ethics though not, it would seem, in Scottish Football.
This week`s 16-26 vote on League Reconstruction was a new low even for the SPFL, which has failed to show good governance throughout.
Now they must hold their breath as Hearts and Partick Thistle proceed to the Court Of Session.
League Reconstruction is hardly a new idea.Scottish Football missed the opportunity, back in 1992, to set up a Scottish Super League or SSL made up of the clubs with all seated stadia, full time squads, high quality floodlights, a youth academy ,undersoil heating,and a sizeable support.
It would have meant far more income from broadcasters,advertisers,sponsors etc.
