And the controversial Lithuanian seems certain to land himself in more hot water with the SFA after his latest comments.
The Tynecastle club have been carpeted for failing to pay their players on time on several occasions, face an upcoming HMRC tax case and have serious financial issues.
However, none of that seems to bother Romanov who is determined to point out the failings of Scottish officials.
And, in an interview with Russian newspaper Izvestia, the controversial Baltic businessman had another blast at the Scotish game.
He said: "Sport has become showbusiness. I went to Scotland and bought a football team and I thought it wouldn't be like that there.
"But, no, it's the same everywhere. No demo-cracy. The referees there take money out of the top two teams and we expect them to judge fairly!
"Scottish referees have to love Rangers and Celtic. Otherwise, it's the end of their career and they go down to the lower leagues.
"But it isn't possible to change the situation there. You try to fight the system, but the machine breaks you. As soon as I said what I thought, the mafia creeps up on you.
"If you try and break their show business structure there, every-one turns against you and then your team has to fight the whole system."
