Another attempt at league reconstruction is on the cards as it emerged that the 12 SPL clubs have been invited to a meeting at Hampden.
Proposals for a 12-12-18 system, with the top two leagues splitting into 8-8-8, the introduction of play-offs, revised financial distribution and the merging of the SPL and the Scottish Football League were rejected after Ross County and St Mirren voted against them earlier this month.
SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster and several clubs claimed at the time that there could be no "cherry-picking" of the proposals but it has been reported that two new plans will be considered - the idea of play-offs and the alternative of an SPL 2 formed by Division One clubs, who met with the SPL last week after having their own talks.
Despite being against the original proposals on the basis that his fans were against the split, Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor is confident that change will take place.
He told BBC Scotland: "Change isn't a necessity, it's inevitable. We've got to find the right formula.
"There is a meeting next week and I really believe that something will come back to the table that everyone can buy into.
"I wouldn't be speaking as optimistically as I am if I didn't believe something would happen.
"I think it could be in place for next season. The board met and are looking at alternatives."
