All of Scotland's top clubs were present at the Hampden meeting to discuss the proposed three leagues of 12-12-18, which would split into 8-8-8-18 after 22 games.

It will take an 11-1 vote to pass the motion, which will also have to be approved by the Scottish Football League, which has yet to set a date for its vote.

Dundee United chairman and SPL board member Stephen Thompson, said: "Everything is positive and moving forward. There is a process in place and we will take it from there."

Asked if he thought reconstruction would be in place for the start of next season, he added: "That's the plan."

St Mirren chairman Stewart Gilmour was more cautious - he said: "We had a good discussion. There was good dialogue and difference of opinion but a long way to go.

"I don't know what will happen. The SFL clubs are still to meet and until they come back. There is a lot of tidying up to be done."

Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor admitted he was concerned with the practicalities of the split.

He said: "There is a lot of debate to go on yet and we will see how that goes. My concerns are for the fans.

"The fan is the most important person, not the clubs, not anything else and I do believe that considering what the fans are getting is really important."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
