First Minister, The Sunday Post and 'A Shameful Silence'
For the record, I think this is as wrong as the signing by Raith Rovers. I strongly support rehabilitation but it must start with remorse. Someone who has shown none for the trauma he caused cannot be a sporting role model https://t.co/Ztkz9DMoFd— Nicola Sturgeon (@NicolaSturgeon) March 1, 2022
The First Minister used her personal Twitter account yesterday to say that David Goodwillie going back to Clyde FC is as wrong as the player signing for Raith Rovers.
The Sunday Post reminded us recently that the First Minister failed to support the campaign have Goodwillie sacked from Clyde Football Club in 2017 - yet all three opposition leaders at Holyrood backed the Sunday Post at the time.
Not a good look, First Minister, because this is about justice - not about virtue signalling on social media.
A Shameful Silence (February 08, 2022)
The Sunday Post is an excellent campaigning newspaper these days and the paper certainly doesn't pull its punches over Nicola Sturgeon and the David Goodwillie affair.
Party leaders pile pressure on club directors over David Goodwillie while MSP calls on local authority to act
PARTY leaders were united as they urged Clyde FC to stop playing rapist David Goodwillie.
The Scottish Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem leaders spoke out as an MSP called on North Lanarkshire Council – which owns Clyde’s Broadwood Stadium – to ban the striker from playing there.
The club’s directors have failed to make any sanction against the striker since his failed appeal against a court judgement that branded him a rapist.
