Inverness boss Butcher calls for calm from SPL chiefs

Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Terry Butcher feels that Scottish Premier League chiefs would be mad to try and implement a new structure to the competition.

Talks are ongoing regarding the restructuring of the Scottish Football League, as well as the SPL, but Calery boss Butcher feels there is nothing wrong with the current climate of Scotland's top flight.

"I think it is a great league. We are talking about reconstruction, but it is one of the best competitions for a long time," said Butcher whose side beat reigning champions Celtic 1-0 on the weekend.

"I can't remember enjoying it as much.

"I know we are doing pretty well, but the standard of football and passing makes it a great environment for young players to blossom in.

"They are going to change it and do this and that - well I am not happy with that.

"My chairman won't be happy with me saying so but we are giving youngsters a real chance to grow on the SPL stage and enjoy it."
