Eleven SPL sides must approve the proposals to send the plans to the Scottish Football League later in the week.

Both leagues and the Scottish Football Association announced agreement in principle on 8 January, with the 12 SPL clubs apparently achieving rare consensus.

But since then, St Mirren have indicated they will vote against the proposed 12, 12, 18 set up, while Ross County have still to make their intention public.

Celtic are the latest of the 10 clubs to back the plan, and chief executive Peter Lawwell reckons his Ross County counterpart Roy MacGregor may regret any decision to go against a new set-up.

Lawwell said: "Maybe in two or three years' time, when the novelty factor has worn off and the quality has kept coming down, Roy might say 'that was an opportunity lost'.

"Maybe he's right, but 10 of us don't agree and we've been around for years. It's not a threat. It's not an ultimatum.

"It's just trying to get him to understand what we know and he has no reason to know because it's new to him."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
