SPL may hold midseason knockout in USA

The Scottish Premier League could introduce a winter break and play a mini-tournament in the 'States.

The Scottish Sun says the SPL knockout tourney would be held in a Gulf State like Dubai - or the USA.

The ambitious plans would see a sponsor brought on board and games played between SPL sides during the period of inactivity in Scotland.

Matches would also be scheduled at a time when they could be beamed back to the UK on live TV in a bid to maximise audiences.

The SPL last had a winter break in 2003 but it was scrapped as clubs complained they missed out on vital cash through a lack of home gates during January.
