LOCAL NEWS:Albert Commey insist Hearts 4-1 loss to RTU and other GPL final week matches were fixed

According to Commey, Hearts of Oak 4-1 loss to RTU was cooked to ensure the Tamale-based survival.

That notwithstanding, Eleven Wonders against Aduana Stars, King Faisal vs Legon Cities and others were not played on merit.

“Ghana Premier League was competitive but wasn’t happy with the final day because there were lots of fixed games. RTU never won any match away. AshGold v Bibiani Gold Stars was fixed. Wonders v Aduana was fixed. King Faisal vs Legon Cities was fixed,” he told Space FM.

“Normally when it gets to that time, clubs want to survive. FA doesn’t know about it. How do you think Hearts of Oak will lose by four goals? Did you watch them yesterday? We shouldn’t be hypocrites or we won’t progress. I’m a Hearts fan, I’m telling you,” he stressed.

The former Aduana Stars CEO also believes the Ghana Football Association are not to be blame for the scandal.

“Let us not be hypocrites or else we wouldn’t move forward in Ghana football.

“I won’t blame the GFA on this, because teams do everything possible to stay in the league during the latter part of the league,” he said.

Corruption in Ghana football has taken a centre stage since the Anas expose dubbed us number 12.

Despite the famous revealing, match-fixing still lives in the game as Inter Allies 7-0 loss to Ashanti Gold last season proves to be one.

Both clubs were relegated to the division two after being found guilty by the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA.
