New plans to add excitement - SPL chief

Published Add your comment

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."
