Guarded response from United chief

Guarded response from United chief

Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson was remaining cautious over the proposed league reconstruction plans.

The revised set-up would feature three divisions with twelve teams in the top two leagues and eighteen in the third tier.

Clubs are set to vote on the proposal but Thompson wants to view further details before fully committing his own club to the scheme.

"These discussions have been ongoing but, as yet, we have not had sight of the detailed proposals," he told BBC Scotland. "Like most supporters, our view is that the game in Scotland needs freshened up in some way.

"Until we see the detail of the proposals we cannot, at this stage, comment on them," Thompson stressed. "We remain as a board of directors open-minded to change and look forward to discussing the detailed proposals in early course."
