Fair Play to Aberdeen

Tomorrow the gaze of Planet Fitba will be on the high-Level production at the Clyde Auditorium.

Rangers International Football Club will be demonstrating to the world just how well run they are and the extent of their rude financial health.

Well, I did say it was a high-Level production.

However, there is another, much older club in Scotland that is due to have its AGM.

Moreover, they’re in a cup final this weekend.

Now I’m sure that this reference to the club’s compliance with UEFA Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations will have delighted the folks on the 6th floor at Hampden.

“The financial performance discussed above delivered a trading surplus for the third successive year, with an operating profit of £448,000 (2015 – £542,000). This is a noteworthy statistic which will help us to deliver a balanced budget over the medium-term and puts the Club in a strong position when subjected to monitoring under UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations”.

Indeed, I can just imagine Mr Neil Doncaster contacting Aberdeen’s Chairman Stewart Milne to give him a pat on the back for that one.

You see dear reader Mr Doncaster will now be able to use the example of Aberdeen to instruct other clubs to doing likewise.

Especially those who have a shout of being in the European zone of the SPFL.

Of course, in a parallel universe if the chaps on the 6th floor at Hampden were not on a par with Lee Wallace’s breakfast then they might even have asked the Dons’ Chairman to excise that excellent passage.

We on Planet Fitba are lucky indeed with the quality of person wearing these coveted blazers.

World class!
