SFA Chief Ian Maxwell has been speaking on BBC Radio Five live about the possibility of the season ending.

The former Partick Thistle chairman has again reiterated the season will NOT be cancelled as it throws up too many uncertainties financially for already struggling clubs.

At a time when two big Scottish clubs in Hearts and Aberdeen have sent out the distress signal for guidance and help during this time, the chief executives answers were non-committal.

“I don’t think there is a consideration for cancellation, I think it’s the same concerns that the English Premier League have in terms of broadcast contracts and contractual obligations that will apply to every league across the world.

“The income is vital regardless of what the headline number is and it’s important we get games finished.

“Everyone wants to get the games played, the guys who get the winner’s medals at the end of the season want to know they’ve played every match and no-one can come back and say they didn’t deserve it in any way.

“Clubs who are potentially in relegation spots, if they’re going to go down at the end of the season then it’s because they’ve been given every chance to avoid that and it’s something we need to try and work through.”

Celtic are in pole position in the table and have already made it clear they would not accept the whole league being scrapped under any circumstances. The league must reach a conclusion or it will open up financial implications for clubs.

Maxwell will be taking advice from the government and UEFA but a directive must be put in place for the good of the game.

At this moment, a game rester before the end of June looks miles off, even though UEFA insist on this happening.
