Raith Rovers are the latest SPFL club to release a statement clarifying their position after a week of drama in Scottish football.

Leaders of Scottish League One, the Fife side have a lot on the line right now, not least a lucrative promotion to the Championship.

They are firmly in the camp of accepting the SPFL’s proposals last week, though in tonight’s statement have also made clear they support the idea of reconstruction.


Both Hearts and Dundee are on the record in seeking reconstruction themselves.

First and foremost though, Raith are insisting any attempt to deny them a title will be defended robustly.

Released on their official website, part of their statement said: “At the time of writing 80% of clubs have voted in favour, but Dundee FC have still to vote and their vote – as everyone knows – will be the deciding factor in determining how matters progress going forward.

“Our position is clear! We want the 2019-20 season declared over, funds distributed and discussion about reconstruction to start very soon.

“Any attempt to deem the 2019/20 season null and void and deny us being named as winners of League 1 and/or not promoted will be vigorously resisted.”

So far the debate has been dominated by clubs such as Rangers, who are looking to derail what the majority of clubs in the country want.

It’s nice to hear from a club with tangible success on the line, just like Celtic.

The Kirkcaldy outfit are currently just one point ahead of Falkirk with eight games remaining, a far less advantageous position than the one Neil Lennon’s Bhoys find themselves in.

It seems that this is a drama that is set to rumble on all week, with Raith making it clear that despite the SPFL board meeting today, no further clarity has been given on Dundee’s position.
