At Monday’s AGM the Scottish Premier League is expected to drop plans to reduce the number of teams in the division to 10, but will examine introducing promotion/relegation play-offs.

Plans to merge the SPL with the Scottish Football League, and the possibility of an SPL television channel, will also be accelerated.

An SPL steering group first introduced the idea of a top 10 with a new second tier of 10 last year and that was later revised to 10 in the top flight and 12 in the division below.

However, the plans have been met with resistance with many clubs keen on increasing the number of teams in the top league beyond 12.

SPL TV was assessed in 2002 but was not voted through and television rights for the league have been held by various broadcasters over the last nine years, with Sky and ESPN the current rights holders.
