The captain of their woman's team with 10 years at club and liaison officer have also called it a day at Raith.

Goodwillie is disgusting, fair play  to Val and their woman’s captain - I hope Gordon Brown and Ian Rankin boycott them too

Aye, just a “football decision”. Christ. At least Gordon Brown has now also condemned the move

Basically saying" We asked you what you thought, you said no way. We said **** you, you are irrelevant.  Now give us your money and support our community club for signing a rapist"

Interesting to see the reaction of the support tonight. Think Raith are at home 

I hope Goodwillie gets roundly booed

I do not condone any form of violence whatsoever. I do think however that the reaction to goodwillie signing for Raith is over the top. He was not convicted in a criminal court as there was not enough evidence. He was convicted in a civil court and was fined £100k. That was the punishment given to him by society. He presumably has paid that. If he is remorseful for his actions surely he should then be allowed to get on with his life

Part of if is that he has shown no remorse, but he is still found guilty of rape in a court

He apparently hasn't paid it as he declared himself bankrupt.

Him and Robertson were fined £100,000 so it was £50,000 each.  As GRE says though he hasn’t paid the fine

I’m not defending him, nor condoning what he has done. Val mcdermid’s statement is opinion, not fact as far as I can see.

Clubs like us and Raith are always battling financial worries.  Removing the moral aspect the BoD are nuts doing this when their biggest backer was against this and they must have thought there was a risk others would follow.
