Hearts owner Ann Budge has continued her crusade to save her team from the drop on BBC radio on Saturday afternoon but it’s what she said during the interview which has raised eyebrows.
Ann is claiming there’s something in the pipelines which would see the SPFL benefit from millions of pounds via philanthropists. Budge comments like there are people willing to help but only if Hearts aren’t relegated.
Huge revelation from @JamTarts owner Ann Budge who knows wealthy philanthropists willing to help Scottish football through the current crisis with potentially millions of pounds. Yet she remains frustrated with the SPFL and the progress that's being made. What will clubs think?

It’s a strange comment from Ann who is facing an uphill battle to convince clubs reconstruction is in the best interests of everyone.
Budge will unlikely push this through BUT the SPFL might need to change out of necessity if clubs fail to survive this current crisis.
This is the first anybody has heard of a potential private bailout of the SPFL.
We’d be keen to know where Ann is getting her information.
If league reconstruction is not on the cards, Budge is likely to go to court.
