Let’s boil this down to the important issues
1) After the phone call he had with JG on Wednesday, Wank Broadfoot was never going to play for St.Mirren again, certainly not this season
2) What’s left is, either he is not going to not play at all, or he is going to play for Kilmarnock
3) If he plays for Kilmarnock, does he improve their chances of dodging the drop. Most would agree the answer is yes which means our chances of dodging it are reduced.
4) There is a financial benefit to us if he goes to Kilmarnock, he is off the wage bill and maybe we got some transfer money for him.
5) Here is the judgement call; is that financial benefit worth the increased chance of us being relegated. We will never know for sure, that’s why it’s a judgement call, but we’ll look a bit stupid if the final game of the season is a winner takes all relegation shootout and he scores the only goal.
6) If we had kept him as we were entitled to do and deprived Kilmarnock of a valuable player, this disruptive presence in the dressing room is a red herring. We would be contractually obliged to pay him but if management believed would be troublesome there is no contractual obligation to have him anywhere near the stadium or training ground.
