SCOTLAND'S FAILING fortunes in football could soon be a distant memory thanks to a radical new plan - to play inside super soccer domes.

Experts frustrated by the country's performance during France 98 - when Scotland took only one point - have decided that the problem could lie with muddy pitches, rain and cold weather. Now a study into a pounds 6 million plan for Britain's first full-size indoor dome is close to completion.

The Association have earmarked an initial pounds 1 million for the project with further cash to be sought from the Lottery, private investors and the clubs themselves.
