SPL chiefs are ready to get tough with managers and players who refuse to attend post-match press conferences, reports the Scottish Sun. Motherwell's Jim Gannon refused to speak to the media after their 2-0 defeat at Hibs on Saturday - and he also gagged his players.
New SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster was stunned to learn bosses and players weren't already contractually obliged to appear before and after games.
Greig Mailer, SPL director of marketing and communication, revealed: "At the moment what we have are media guidelines for our members.
"But it's possible they could be turned into rules - with rigidly applied sanctions for those who don't comply.
"We've had a meeting to discuss the situation and we may now review our policy.
"A proposal would then be put to the member clubs at our next quarterly general meeting in January.
"If the majority support it then our constitution could be amended to make this a rule which we would then police."
