Six Premiership sides have proposed a meeting between all SPFL member clubs and its chairman and chief executive.

Murdoch MacLennan and Neil Doncaster have been urged to attend the meeting later this month by Aberdeen, Livingston, Motherwell, Rangers, St Mirren and St Johnstone.

The six top-flight clubs have issued a fresh statement following the release of their initial concerns last week about the SPFL's 'independence and transparency' of the recent corporate governance report into the league's governing body.

It reads: "Following the clubs' letter to the SPFL chairman and chief executive, a response was received from the chairman on February 9. 

"On consideration of the chairman's letter of reply, the clubs believe it to be imperative, in the best interests of transparency and governance, that the chairman and chief executive meet with their shareholders. 

"To end that, the clubs have invited the chairman and chief executive to attend a meeting of all member clubs to address the issues around the Independent Governance Review.

"All SPFL member clubs are invited to attend and participate in this meeting, which is to take place at 11am on February 27."

Last week's joint statement reads: "On behalf of SPFL Premiership clubs Aberdeen, Motherwell, Livingston, Rangers, St Johnstone and St. Mirren, a letter was today issued to the SPFL executive in response to the handling of the recent
Independent Governance report.

"The clubs hold serious concerns regarding the report's independence, transparency, and the overall governance of the SPFL.

"The letter seeks full clarity on numerous issues so that the clubs, as shareholders of the SPFL, can determine if further action is necessary.

"In conjunction with a draft report being made available to the SPFL Board, SPFL Chairman Murdoch MacLennan hastily released a statement that did not reflect the full findings of the report.

"Additionally, the statement was issued without the approval or knowledge of members of the SPFL Board or SPFL member clubs.

"The SPFL Board is to meet at a future date to discuss the draft report's contents, making it highly inappropriate for the SPFL Chairman to have made any public comment ahead of that meeting.

"Regarding the report itself, the clubs and others are deeply concerned about its independence, given that the SPFL Executive received the first draft of the report and made changes to it prior to sending it to SPFL Board members.

"Of the 42 member clubs, only one had the opportunity to input into the report’s investigation, outside of current or previous SPFL Board members.

"Despite several requests from the clubs, the report has yet to be released to any of the member clubs despite the clubs footing the bill for its creation.

"The handling of the Independent Governance report has brought the clubs governance concerns to a head, and it is now incumbent on the SPFL Board and Executive, for the sake of trust in those running our game, to provide clarity over these clear and deeply troubling concerns as a matter of urgency."

The SPFL hit back though, citing 'factual inaccuracies'.

A spokesperson said: “We can confirm that yesterday we received a letter on behalf of six Premiership Clubs.

"The letter contained a number of factual inaccuracies, which we have now addressed with those clubs.

"We look forward to discussing the recommendations of the independent governance review with all Premiership Clubs at a meeting soon, once the process has been completed."
