Every Scottish Premier League club hands "unanimous backing" to reconstruction plans for the country's football.

All 12 of the Scottish Premier League clubs have given "unanimous backing" to proposed plans to reconstruct the current Scottish league structure.

Under the terms of the new plans, Scottish football will revert to a three-tier system, with 12 teams in the top two divisions, while the third will contain 18 clubs.

While the likes of Rangers are known to be against the prospect, SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster has confirmed that all of the top flight clubs are fully behind the idea.

"We got unanimous backing of the way forward today so it now goes to Thursday and the Scottish Football League clubs will have their views. But today, the Scottish Premier League clubs were united in their view that this is the way forward," he said.

"We provided further details that have arisen from meetings over the past weeks. The last time that all of our SPL clubs got together was on 3 December so in the intervening time there has been some more detail that's been discussed with the PGB and with the SFL board.

"All of that was provided today and the clubs are clear and united and unanimous in their view that this should be taken forward to the next stage."

A meeting to discuss further plans will take place on Thursday.
