THE Scottish Professional Football League last night confirmed BBC Scotland will broadcast television highlights, radio commentary and online clips of the Championship this season.

The package forms part of a range of broadcast deals agreed with the BBC, STV and also the Bauer Group.

The league body - which announced earlier this summer that there would be increased coverage of Scottish football on Sky Sports, BT Sport and BBC Alba - expect the new deals to be worth a six-figure sum of money distributed across all 42 senior clubs.
