Ham­p­den roar­ing for real change

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - OPINION -

Well, the game to keep Ham­p­den as Scot­land’s na­tional foot­ball sta­dium went into ex­tra-time, and was won only by the timely in­ter­ven­tion and gen­eros­ity of two great Scots, Sir Wil­lie Haughey and Sir Tom Hunter. But the cor­rect de­ci­sion has been made and Ham­p­den’s foot­balling fu­ture is now se­cured and Mur­ray­field’s bid has been kicked into touch.

The SFA now have to de­liver, the fans and the peo­ple of Glas­gow ex­pect noth­ing less. The Old Lady of Mount Florida needs new clothes and money spent on her to bring her up to scratch.

If they don’t the Tar­tan Army will be com­ing down the road to kick them out!
