No consensus has been reached among the 42 SPFL teams over how the 2020/21 season should end if it needs to be curtailed by the global health crisis.
The SPFL want to avoid the controversy that led to a massive dispute between Rangers and the league’s governing body following the curtailment of the 2019/20 campaign.
However, despite attempts to find an agreement, there has been no breakthrough yet. 20 clubs want the season to be curtailed with places decided on a points per game basis if a certain threshold of games has been reached.
17 of the teams want the season to be declared ‘null and void’ if a certain number of matches haven’t been played. 12 clubs are prepared to give the SPFL board more powers to manage things if the season is disrupted.
19 of the 42 remain undecided on most of these issues and they have said it is too early in the campaign to make such decisions. It will be interesting to see whether another survey of clubs will lead to greater consensus on the way forward.
