Hampden Park: SPL meeting on Monday

All 12 SPL clubs are keen to push for a merger with the Scottish Football League that would see the introduction of a play-off involving the 11th-placed club and three second-tier teams.

However, the SPL sides are yet to agree on wealth distribution that could be a stumbling block for clubs in the Second and Third Divisions of the SFL.

All 42 clubs in the SPL and SFL have stated their desire to instigate a change by the start of next season, although many believe this would be difficult to rush through in time for any new campaign in August.

Suspicion between the SPL and SFL remains and, only last month, SFL chief executive David Longmuir said: "We were divorced in 1998 but almost 16 years have elapsed and we're now thinking, 'for the sake of the children, we should be back together again'.

"But there is mistrust. There is an element of, 'you did this to us before and I don't want that to happen again'. That is the analogy.

"In any remarriage, a bit of time has elapsed, a lot of water has run under the bridge and things have happened. But, for the sake of the children, let's get this sorted."
