United chairman quits SPL board
Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has quit the Scottish Premier League board due to what are termed "professional differences".
He follows on from SPL chairman Ralph Topping leaving his post before the end of the current season. Thompson was only appointed to the board in September of last year.
The SPL clubs are due to meet next week in order to discuss league reconstruction plans.
"The Scottish Premier League can confirm that Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has resigned from the SPL board with immediate effect," announced an SPL statement.
