The SPL has failed to achieve the 11-1 majority required to agree a new league format.

It's just going to drag on, interesting times.

The Rangers proposal of 14-14-14 can work also I think.

To the rest of Scottish Football on behalf of Ross County: You're welcome.

It was a ridiculous league structure that can't be justified in any way.

Nice to see your Chairman and St Mirren didn`t waver.

It was an abomination of proposals which the vast majority of fans didn`t want.

Perhaps Stewart Milne wishes he hadn`t got into bed with Lawell over the voting structure now.

Splitting of the league into sections which join together to create new leagues within the same season while other leagues go on with point totals accumulated against teams that no longer play in their league?

The next negotiation they'd have looked to introduce a super multiball period if the game was tied with ten minutes to go so they can create more 'drama'.

Just expand the league FFS! Copy Belgium.

You can see that they have become so dependent on 38 games that they have to try and come up with these cockamamie schemes to achieve 38 games. They need to accept less games and a proper league structure.

So either make the SPL 20 teams, no-way that happens. Or expand to say 16-18 teams and play a 30-34 game schedule. I would create two leagues of 18 teams just like the Bundesliga and then under that is a a set of regional leagues.

And as a big Celtic fan I think it is on them to lead the way. They need to step up and accept less in order for the league to prosper.

Should be a 60,000 seat sellout on Sunday.

They reduced the ticket prices from 29 down to 20 for the final two home games. Much more affordable and hopefully a sign of things to come.

Congrats Celtic. It's good that there was so much parity between 2 and 11 this year, but it would have been nice if someone would have pulled away from the pack to mount a better challenge.

It would've been a farcical performance from Celtic to not win the title.

A Lithuanian court has ruled that bankruptcy proceedings should commence against Hearts' main creditor, Ukio Bankas, BBC Scotland has learned.

Hearts owe the bank around 15m and the debt could now be called in.
The Edinburgh club are about 25m in debt, with 15m of that secured by Tynecastle Stadium and now controlled by the administrators of Ukio Bankas.

Ten clubs are ready to quit the Scottish Football League in time for next season, BBC Scotland has learned.

Interesting to see if anything actually develops
