SFA Statement

June 25, 2012

The Scottish Football Association has issued the following statement in response to speculation relating to possible league re-construction as a result of what is now becoming known as “The Rangers Situation”.

The following statement has been issued on behalf of the Scottish FA, SPL and SFL:

“All three parties have been involved in productive discussions for some time on the subject of league reconstruction. This culminated in a positive meeting last night, out of which the two league bodies will now engage in a wider consultation with their member clubs.

“The discussions are based on the key principles for reconstruction outlined in the Henry McLeish Review of Scottish football:

* One league body in the senior game
* Promotion/relegation play-off between SPL and SFL First Division
* Single financial distribution model
* Pyramid system, with the potential for relegation from and promotion to the fourth tier

“Further consultation will take place in the near future, with the aim of reaching a positive outcome on a new model to take Scottish football forward.”

The Sonstrust Board have been discussing the situation and have been in consultation and there will be comment published later today.
