She's the partner of a Ross County player who is probably about to be released (I'm guessing). Trying to show her clout?

Needs to shut her big gob and only open it to sing songs which I won’t be streaming from Spotify anymore

Concentrate on what you are good at and leave running football clubs to other people with knowledge of what it takes

Is a the The Rangers fan of course so undoubtedly knows more than the whole world about everything and anything

Feckin angry I am!

I wonder how much money she will be making the now. I would imagine that she has a band and others when she is singing. Did she furlough them or not renew their contracts.

Tbf, she's still worth a few quid. Wife didn't believe me when I told her. Not got anything against her but she should probably have kept quiet given who her partner is.

Can we expect to see Nicola Sturgeon's husband interviewed on what he thinks about the handling of Coronavirus?

She is right, in my opinion.

I can see the moral dilemma from the club's point of view.....why change what we normally would have done just because the furlough scheme is in place? But, in the current environment, I think we could have left that to one side given the support the government is providing everyone (let's face it these guys have paid their taxes and the government is meant to be here to support us all).

ETA: I have now read some of the other thread and better understand the concerns about potential HMRC liability.

Imagine not being allowed to have an opinion because :
She's a female.
She's made a wad of money through singing.

She's also a keen football fan and get this. She had opinions before she was famous too.
Who'd a thought it eh?

I think it's possibly abuse of the system to extend contracts for a month purely to take tax payers' money. All in all them, she probably should have been less dramatic in her tone.

Some of the abuse on this thread is pretty embarrassing though. Far worse than anything she's said.

It's not her giving her opinion I would have any issue with but why single out the Pars in the national press? Her beloved Rangers released half a dozen players earlier in the week.Her husband's team have now indicated they are doing exactly the same as are clubs up and down the country if you look.The 'plead poverty' statement shows ignorance to the fans who have contributed to keep the club running imo and suggests we are being dishonest.

I had my suspicions and just did some looking and what a surprise-she has just brought a new song out.

Her gender has nothing to do with it. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but a few questions arise:

- Why pick on one team when a number of teams have done this?

- Why ask Amy McDonald in the first place?

- Why publish an ill-informed article based on Amy McDonald's opinions?

- Why is a wealthy singer with little understanding of football club financing trying to tell a club run by people with years of experience in running businesses how to run a club?

The agenda here is obvious. Her husband has gotten wind that Ross County are unlikely to extend his contract. Cue a shot across the bow about how awful the Pars are.

McDonald clearly knows nothing about financing a club. What she has suggested is fraudulent and is akin to stealing from the taxpayer. Perhaps she would be better sticking to singing?

What's happened is disappointing but, sadly, that's life with contracts. It's going to be a hard time for players with few clubs looking to sign players until we have clarity.

Not agreeing with people making suggestions about her activities with footballers, but a millionaire telling clubs to stop "pleading poverty" is below the belt and uncalled for. If she really cared then should be supporting the creation of a fighting fund for out of contract players. Instead she's mouthing off to the Daily Record.

FWIW, I think this all started with her replying to the club statement when it was posted on Twitter, rather than the DR asking her for her opinion etc. The usual gutter journalism these days of spin one tweet into a full article.

Will be interesting to see if she repeats her comments to many other teams as and when players are released...

She is entitled to her opinion and is probably more informed about the player side of the argument than a number of posters who made comments about her.
I don’t agree with her on a footballing level or on a financial level, but that is because I wish to see Dunfermline Athletic be a viable entity in whatever form it takes. This makes me side with the board.
We have different opinions because we are wanting different things.
She seems to be consistent in her argument so far as she is informed by her footballer boyfriend.
Good luck to her but let’s wait a little time to see what happens in football rather than a knee jerk reaction she has suggested.
Now is the time to play a long game to survive.

She’s now tweeted on response to the Roy McGregor/Daily Record article. Saying there a disgrace etc, clearly not just us.

Perhaps if she could sing as well as the tax/contract advice she is providing we’d be in a far better place

She's a football fan, if you've ever heard her on Off the Ball you'd realise that. Good musician too in my book, and just because she criticises our club isn't a reason to dislike or hate or slander her.

Worth pointing out that MacDonald doesn't appear to have a clue. She pointed to a question from Amy Callaghan (MP) to the chancellor asking for reassurance that HMRC wouldn't chase those extending contracts. He replied saying the case would need looked into but they would seek to protect from "frivolous claims". He certainly didn't say "No bother, hen. Fire on with extending contracts for players you would normally have let go..."
