Scottish Premier League's St. Mirren Joins Ross County In Opposing League Reform
Scottish football’s reconstruction plans "could collapse this week" with Scottish Premier League's St. Mirren ready to join league rival Ross County "in opposing the reforms," according to Gordon Waddell of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. The SPL’s 12 clubs will vote on April 15 "on the controversial 12-12-18 league set-up with an 11-1 majority needed to push through the changes." Ross County Chair Roy MacGregor "has already nailed his colours to the mast by objecting to the scheme." Ross County will "break cover with a formal statement opposing the plans" within the next few days. That will "drive the final nail in the coffin of the proposals" by denying the "Yes" camp the 11th vote it needs. St. Mirren Chair Stewart Gilmour is "unhappy at various aspects of the proposed new rule book" (DAILY RECORD, 4/7).
