FURIOUS Partick Thistle have slammed the SPFL over their proposal to end the Scottish football season early.

The Jags, who are two points behind Queen of the South in the Championship having played a game less, and Stranraer, who are eight points behind Forfar at the foot of League 1, will both drop down if clubs in their divisions vote in favour. 

Meanwhile, Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers will be promoted if the resolution is passed.

As one of the clubs that would be relegated, Thistle have released a statement saying they “will simply not accept this proposal as it stands”.

The bottom-placed Ladbrokes Championship side said: “We believe that the proposal requires significantly more discussion, scrutiny and debate before any vote can be taken.

“We are now engaging with others to amend the proposal to identify a fairer and more equitable solution to address a number of inequalities it throws up.

“At an unprecedented time for football, we believe that it doesn’t meet the basic principle that no club should be left worse off by this important decision.

“It also seems to link acceptance of the proposal before payments can be made to hard-pressed clubs but, in our opinion, the two things do not need to be linked.

“Money to clubs is a priority, the proposal could be debated in slower time.”
