Responding to comments by SPFL Chief Executive, Neil Doncaster, where he argued that Scottish football can be "proud" of its efforts to combat sectarianism, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

"Neil Doncaster shouldn't be proud of his organisation keeping critical data on sectarianism at football out of public view.

"It's obvious this is wrong. This underhand agreement should never have been cooked up between the Scottish Government and the SPFL in the first place and if it wasn't for our work to expose the existence of these reports there's no doubt the Cabinet Secretary and Neil Doncaster would have carried on keeping it secret.

"This information should be made public immediately. It shouldn't have to wait for the next Board meeting."
