ALL 42 SPFL clubs will be consulted on what to do if the 2020/21 campaign cannot be played to completion because of the Covid-19 pandemic, report the BBC.

The sides within the professional set-up in Scotland will give their views on what the contigency plans should be with regards to the awarding of titles, relegation and promotion should the season be curtailed early once again.

Each club will be asked to answer a series of questions and if there is a general consensus, then a formal ballot is likely to follow.

The 2019/20 season was cut short due to the knock-on effects of the coronavirus, leading to months of bitter arguments and disputes to settle issues such as promotion and relegation, with Hearts and Partick Thistle taking Scottish football's governing body to court where the case was ultimately referred back to the SFA.

Earlier this summer, an SPFL resolution that would have allowed the league body to take control of the season in the event of further disruption failed to gather enough support.

This season, there have already been a few occasions where top-flight sides have been unable to field a team. Kilmarnock had to forfeit two Betfred Cup fixtures as they did not have enough available players, while St Mirren's league game against Motherwell last weekend had to be postponed for the same reason.
