SPFL chairman insists crucial vote still to come in

The fate of the season rests in the hands of Dundee.

Scottish Professional Football league chairman Murdoch MacLennan insists the crucial vote on a resolution to finish the three lower leagues as they stand is still to come in.

The fate of the season rests in the hands of Championship club Dundee after the Premiership and League One/Two clubs backed the plan ahead of the advised deadline of 5pm on Friday.

In a letter to members, MacLennan wrote: “One Ladbrokes Championship club attempted to submit a voting slip, which did not reach the SPFL until late that evening.

“Earlier, at 6pm on Friday, that club had confirmed in writing to the SPFL that any attempted vote from that club should not be considered as cast.

“We have had a number of conversations with the chairman of that club over the weekend, in which he reiterated that his club had not yet voted on the SPFL resolution.”
