Everything is calm in Hampden today as the coronavirus lockout continues across the UK.

But in the virtual world, the national stadium and those who would normally stay in the halls of Scottish football are just beginning one of the most important days in the recent history of our sport.

Of course, what the next eight hours could bring is not “virtual”.

Clubs register their votes as Scottish football decides exactly what to do with the rest of the season in the middle of the COVID-19 shutdown.

Without football – even in training – until June 10 at least, it seems almost impossible that the season could be ended without at least significantly affecting the next campaign.

Two options are considered for the 42 clubs. First, vote for the SPFL resolution to call the championship, league one and league two right now based on an average of points per game and postpone a decision on the Premiership to be decided on the same criteria until at the end of the month.

Or two – vote against the idea above.

But a third option may well find its place on the table at some point today. The Rangers have tabled a “member resolution” calling for the continuation of the league when it is certain, but that the prizes will be distributed now based on current positions.

Some votes are already in progress. But Record Sport’s flawed survey of the 42 suggests that we are in for a close call.

Stay with us throughout the day for the latest news.
