Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster is confident league reconstruction plans will add further excitement and interest to Scottish football if given the go-ahead.

Top-flight clubs on Monday gave their "unanimous backing" to proposals for a revamped 12-12-18 league structure. Doncaster revealed consensus had been achieved at a meeting of the 12 clubs at Hampden and the plans will be discussed by Scottish Football League clubs on Thursday.

He said: "Ultimately, this is a larger league. It will involve more teams and it will involve play-offs so there will be a lot more teams involved in promotion and relegation. I think it will drive excitement and will drive interest."
