THE dossier of damning evidence which will reveal SPFL wrongdoings – which should have been produced today by the Ibrox bosses – has been POSTPONED.

Instead, the findings against the Hampden chiefs will now be circulated to the the league’s other member clubs on Thursday.

Stewart Robertson, the Govan outfit’s managing director, had reassured his Premiership counterparts during a conference call on Friday that material would be shared with them this week as they push for an independent inquiry into the way league bosses handled a crucial vote.

It was anticipated the ‘evidence’ would be released today, but, according to a report in the Scottish Sun, the timeline is likely to be pushed back a further 48 hours.

The Ibrox team are clearly agitated the league supremos decided to halt the leagues outwith the top flight following a vote last month. They called for the immediate suspension of chief executive Neil Doncaster and legal adviser Rod McKenzie.

Member clubs will vote at an EGM a week today about whether to sanction the probe.

Meanwhile, Doncaster and his SFA counterpart Ian Maxwell are holding a separate video conference with Scottish minister for public health, sport and wellbeing Joe Fitzpatrick today amid speculation that as many as NINE Premiership sides are ready to call and end to the season.

The premature end to the campaign would undoubtedly see Celtic crowned champions for the ninth successive season. They were top of the league with an advantage of 13 points with eight games to play when football went into lockdown in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Maxwell and Doncaster will attend the talks – along with the heads of the SRU, SportScotland and Scottish Racing – as government officials work out when a phased return to sport can get under way.
