SPL clubs agree play-off proposal

Celtic's manager Neil Lennon celebrates winning the SPL title

Scottish Premier League clubs today agreed to push for a new merged 42-club body with top-flight play-offs in time for next season.

The proposals, which are still to be put to the Scottish Football League, would ensure a 12-10-10-10 system with the 11th-placed team in the top flight involved in four-team play-offs at the end of the season.

Two SPL clubs, Ross County and St Mirren, last month vetoed a similar plan on the basis that they were unconvinced by the merits of a system to split the top two divisions into three after 22 games. This facet has now been dropped.
