I don’t think there should be relegation this season. This is an opportunity to expand the league.
In which case we should just void this year in all respects. Harsh but fair. If you suggest two up none down it would suit me, as things stand with ICTFC. I would like ultimately, a full 20 team Premier league and the remaining 22 in a championship. Three up, three down, a little like the English version. It would give SPL teams the same number of league games a year with none of the tiresome old 3,4 games against the same opposition each season. At the same time giving the lower tier teams an extra 2 games a year. We could get rid of the Challenge cup at the same time, a totally worthless competition designed solely to give more games, income, to lower league teams.

If we void this season can teams afford to lose the prize money?

I don’t think the season is going to finish. I can see a few clubs going into administration and others going part-time. The days of fitba players getting lavish contracts are gone for a while.
Void the season, spilt the prize money whatever way is fair and restructure the leagues.

What money? TV money - gone! Advertising money - gone! Shirt sponsors - gone!

There will be very little actual dosh sloshing around to hand out, and you can bet your bottom dollar that the admin bodies SFA, SPL, etc will ensure they are funded using the idea that the sport needs them!

SPL has started releasing money to teams

Problem is it should be on a sliding scale depending on position.
If here is a null and void season then there are no positions so technically there should be no money to dish out.
However they do seem to be releasing some to teams.

As with all businesses throughout the United Kingdom and beyond, Rangers is continuing to deal with the implications of the Coronavirus pandemic.

We have carefully considered measures which ensure that all employees are treated fairly and with respect whilst we safeguard our club finances in such uncertain times. No professional football club or business is immune to the challenges of this unprecedented situation and as a club, we will continue to review actions necessary to navigate our way responsibly in such a changeable environment.

Rangers can confirm that First Team players, Manager, coaches and Executive Directors have volunteered to take a salary deferral for the next three months. Senior players and staff were keen to ensure that no Rangers employee suffered financial hardship during this crisis.

All parties volunteered and wholeheartedly agreed to defer wages to ensure that fellow colleagues could continue to be paid their salaries in full. We are proud of the leadership and responsibility taken by senior members of staff, and acknowledge the positive impact that this will have on everyone at Rangers. We firmly believe in the ‘one club’ concept and are united in our collective goal of making Rangers the very best in every facet of football life. We are resolved that the integrity of the club is maintained as we continue our focus on ensuring the financial stability of the business.

Due to the extraordinary challenges from the ongoing crisis, Rangers intends to implement the Coronavirus job retention scheme for a number of employees.

Rangers will ensure that everyone furloughed under this government scheme will receive 100 per cent salary through ‘top up’ assistance from the club with all other conditions and benefits remaining unchanged.

We are proud of the continued efforts and support of everyone at Rangers during this difficult period.

Finally, we wish all our supporters and their families good health during this time. We are especially thankful for the tireless work of NHS staff and other key workers who are selflessly working to keep us all safe and well. Please continue to follow government guidelines at this time.

Rangers Captain, James Tavernier said on behalf of the playing squad: “I want to place on record our appreciation to every single member of staff for their determination and resolve during these unprecedented events. I’m very proud of the reaction of everyone at Rangers to the challenge we face throughout the UK and beyond.

“As a team, we were adamant that we work together to do all we can to secure the future of the football club. We are also acutely aware of the livelihoods and wellbeing of our staff.

“In reality, it was an easy decision for players and senior staff. Now is the time to work with unity of purpose, as the Rangers family, to ensure that everyone works together to maintain our institution. Today has made me proud to be Rangers captain.”
