SPL CEO open to changes in league structure

Wed 14th Apr 2010 | Football Governance

Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster insists he would be open to changes to the league structure following criticism of the controversial split.

Rangers and Motherwell are among those who have expressed unhappiness with the final five fixtures of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League campaign.

Doncaster, himself, admits he thought the idea of a league split was "odd" before taking up his post with the organisation.

And he says he is willing to canvass clubs in a bid to find ways to improve upon the current system.

He said: "Certainly, when you are looking from the south up here to what it looks like, you raise an eyebrow and it does look a bit odd.

"But when you come up here, it makes more sense.

"You've got 12 teams in the league and the only way that you can have the right number of games for those 12 teams is to have the split in the way that we have it.

"No one is pretending it's perfect.
