Even as we move closer and closer to the day competitive football action returns to Scotland, Tuesday proved that rancour and division is still only every around the corner in SPFL. The Scottish FA delivered a notice of complaint to both Hearts and Partick Thistle.
The two clubs are, of course, set to go through the SFA’s arbitration process as they seek to have their relegations overturned following the termination of the 2019/20 season and subsequent failure of league reconstruction. It has added even greater spice to the upcoming independent tribunal.
We will have all the latest from around Scottish football throughout the day as it happens, including transfer news.

Calls for SPFL voting revamp
Stenhousemuir chairman Iain McMenemy has called for a change in the current set-up at the SPFL with regards to votes.
For moves to be made within the game it requires the support of 90 per cent of Premiership clubs.
He wrote in The Scotsman: “We’re now finding out, it means that unless there is near unanimity amongst Premiership clubs, then they can’t pass anything even where 10 clubs are in support with only two against. It also creates an ever-present divide between the Premiership and the other 30 clubs across the lower three divisions.”
Scottish Cup semi final update
The Scottish Cup semi-final dates are dependent on Hearts.
The Tynecastle club are currently in a legal challenge with the SPFL over their relegation.
If their demotion is confirmed the last four of the Scottish Cup could face a wait until November before it is played.
