SPFL chief Doncaster relaxes loan laws

The Scottish Professional Football League has relaxed its rule regarding the amount of loan players clubs can send out.

Rules stated that Scottish clubs could loan no more than one player to other sides in the same country, which attracted criticism from Motherwell boss Stuart McCall.

At a league meeting on Monday, the SPFL decided to alter the laws to allow clubs to lend up to two players to teams in a different division, however, loans to clubs in the same division remain restricted to just one.

"Member clubs had asked us to look at this rule which we acted on immediately and I'm very grateful to the SPFL board for responding so quickly and effectively," said SPFL chief Neil Doncaster.

"By making this rule adjustment while the transfer window is open it allows our clubs to consider all options open to them and plan accordingly."
