The American businessman said he’d like to see the law eased, pointing out that drink is sold at most other sporting events in the country.
However, he has acknowledged that alcohol can cause trouble and bad behaviour at games, but insists football clubs should be given a chance to show how they can police the issue by bringing back booze at games.
In 2018, Scottish FA chief executive Ian Maxwell said it was “definitely a conversation worth having” with regards to the lifting of the ban.
