ON CALL Celtic chief Peter Lawwell to join SPFL & SFA for new season talks with Scottish Government
CELTIC chief Peter Lawwell will join the SFA & SPFL in talks with the Scottish Government over the start date for next season.

Hoops supremo Lawwell will make up part of the SPFL delegation alongside Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor to give a club perspective on the Covid-19 shutdown.

The SFA and SPFL are expected to propose an August 1 date for the start of the new season to ensure the terms of the £125million Sky Sports broadcasting deal are met.

The Times also report representatives from the Scottish Rugby Union and Scottish horse racing will also join the Zoom conference on sport in Scotland.

SFA chief Ian Maxwell and Neil Doncaster from the SPFL are set to present a detailed proposal to Health and Sports Minister Joe FitzPatrick and National Clinical Director Jason Leitch.

It's hoped it will allow for a return of domestic football after last season was cut short amid the Covid-19 crisis.
The six to eight week plan will reveal a return-to-training protocol based on medical advice before the season begins.

Players and officials would face tests for coronavirus twice a week, as clubs to follow a social distancing programme and individual training building up to full contact training.

The SFA will lift the suspension of Scottish football IF the Scottish Government are convinced by the new report.If the Scottish Premiership season is agreed to start again in August it could lead to a Championship return in October with an 18-game season.League One and Two clubs face a longer wait with clubs told testing procedures would cost between £3,000 and £5,000 per week, despite no gate income from matches.

Somehow he always has seat at the table when decisions are to be made, but they seem to believe we run the game up here.

So Lawwell will make up part of the SPFL delegation to give a club perspective on the Covid-19 shutdown.

I thought the SPFL board had elected members who represented the clubs and who, being elected onto the board, you would assume are capable of giving a "club perspective". If not then why are they there.

If they can then why is a non elected person introduced into this delegation to represent the clubs?

Corrupt.

The question has to be “why”?
What makes him so different to every other CEO?

Absolutely correct.
However, on the plus side, it actually proves who runs Scottish football.

The media will say it’s a master stroke to involve such a knowledgeable man, Jackson will be peddling the myth that it’s all for the greater good of Scottish football. It makes me sick to the stomach the way this guy has so much control over the game in Scotland, and if anyone thinks that simply by signing superior players we can win the league, think again.

The spfl board have football club directors so need for lawell and the cost of testing will impact more on the likes of Motherwell and Hamilton than them so for a more realistic return then they should be present but if you want to be bullied by one club this is what happens

Why does this horrible bastard need to be involved in every single decision making process in Scottish football. Don’t the SPFL and SFA have a a load of directors from member clubs that can represent them for such matters? What purpose do they serve if Lawwell is the one making all decisions.

Just a few weeks ago they absolutely begged clubs to end the season with immediate effect. Now they are going to beg the Scottish Government to allow them to restart.

They don’t even try and hide it any more they really don’t.

Agree - So Doncaster & co are now saying that they're not capable of representing all 42 clubs, they need Lawwell to represent the clubs - or is the truth that Lawwell doesn't trust them for this meeting and has to break cover and attend himself.

Wonder if they'll roll out the old Scottish Football is worth £210 M per annum to the Scottish Economy ? I think that is the figure they've used before but of course the source of this figure is shrouded in mystery, nobody has ever queried it.

On what basis can that even be entertained?
Rest of Scottish football won’t care (They’ve accepted their fate and are happy with the status quo) but Rangers should be publicly demanding clarification on this.

As a young boy my da taught me if I'm ever in a fight, if I can't win it at least make sure that no one will ever want to fight me again.

We should be dragging the f*ckers through the courts but instead we walked away and now they (continue) to flaunt their off-field supremacy over us.

Looks to me like celtc* must be a lot worse off than people realise, desperate one week to end season and gifted a title ensuring prize monies, access to CL qualifiers and able to sell all the 9iar* tat to now making sure he's the one giving a 'rousing speech' to somehow get the season up and running to ensure transfer and TV income.

This delegation should be completely impartial and independent from any member club, especially given the recent corporate governance and transparency issues.

RFC and ICT rise up against the SPFL and they go with the fhilth and RC, couldn't make it up!

The shellic only have their own interests at heart, this corruption needs to end.
