Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has kicked off the wide-ranging review of the club by revealing that he will no longer receive his £100,000 wage.
Even before the relegation-threatened Tangerines know what division they will be playing in next season – it looks likely to be the Championship – moves are afoot to change how things work at Tannadice.
As Courier Sport reported on Tuesday, the root and branch review is deemed necessary in the wake of a miserable season and a bit, both on and off the park.
That comprehensive overhaul will not only deal with the playing side but also address other areas including – as is now apparent – the wage policy at the very highest level.
The first major development is the confirmation from Thompson that he will no longer draw his six-figure salary.
The Tannadice chairman, whose sister Justine Mitchell quit as a director on Sunday, declared: “We are undertaking a root and branch review of the business in line with what we said at the club’s annual general meeting .
“That process is ongoing but, as the first step, I have decided that I will no longer take a salary.
“I believe that is in the best interests of the club and the company.”
