Iain Campbell's column: Taxing times at Dens Park.
THERE must be a few Dundee fans scratching their heads today and wondering just what is going on at the club.
The news that the Dens outfit have an outstanding tax bill of pounds 65,000 has stunned Scottish football.
Their reported annual loss of pounds 6.64 million seemed unimportant after their controversial director Giovanni di Stefano started investing.
And with superstars like Fabrizio Ravanelli and Craig Burley arriving it seemed that they were the one club outwith the Old Firm able to make big signings.
The old Chinese curse of "may you live in interesting times" could have been coined for the current situation at Dens Park and even United fans will hope that the financial problem is only temporary, because Scottish football needs another major club bankrupted like a hole in the head.
