SPL bullish over new structure
Tuesday 18 January 2011
Scottish football faces major changes with an SPL statement released yesterday announcing that there was "broad support" for restructuring proposals.
The suggested changes would result in a 10-team Premiership and 12-team Championship at the top of a pyramid for the domestic game in Scotland.
The plans have met with a mixed reaction, however, with Dundee, Kilmarnock and Inverness all expressing opposition and a poll by fans' trust Supporters Direct showing 90 per cent of fans are against the proposals in their current form.
