"I'm disappointed in the people at Rangers" - Donald Findlay QC

Ex-Rangers vice chairman Donald Findlay QC has expressed his disappointment in his former club for their handling of their allegations against the SPFL.

English football's no fans concern

There are concerns that fans could be shut out of games until next year.

A leaked recording heard by the BBC has revealed that the EFL don't believe fans will be able to return to stadiums until a cure is found for the coronavirus.

Alex Rodman, Bristol Rovers' PFA delegate, said: "We won't be playing any games with any fans this year, they (the EFL) don't think so. We'll be looking at January 2021 unless a cure pops up."

The worry is that could extend to Scotland with the Government uneasy on games starting up any time soon. 

Premiership clubs set for showdown talks

The 12 Scottish Premiership clubs, plus Championship winners Dundee United, will meet via Zoom to discuss the future of the current season.

The focus will be on how to best conclude the 2019/2020 campaign.

Uefa have given nations a May 25 deadline to submit plans for how they plan to do so,

Discussions over whether it is feasible that the season could be finished will take place, as will the possibility of terminating the season on a points-per-game average.

Rangers' call for an independent investigation are unlikely to be discussed.
