There has been increased speculation about a new league set-up for next season after clubs failed to agree a restructure plan put forward by the Scottish Football League.

First Division teams are keen to stage a break away which would see 10 clubs in the 'SPL2' and reports suggested that Rangers could be invited to join.

But interim club chief executive Craig Mather insists there has been no such contact and is not interested in fast-tracking the team through the divisions.

He told the club's website: "Ally (McCoist) and I have always been on the same page and the club's stance is simple. We're now in June and we have had no contact whatsoever from the SPL regarding anything.

"We want to work our way up the leagues creating building blocks so that when we get back to the top of Scottish football, we have the right team and ethos.

"As far as we are concerned, we will be playing in SFL2 or whatever that league will be called next season."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
