Football clubs and fans were left in the dark after a series of conference calls at Hampden today left one club underwhelmed.

Nothing seems to have moved forward with the only definite announcement being that there will be no football until the end of April at the earliest.

One week after the domestic game was suspended no-one is any closer to having questions answered although Celtic chief Peter Lawwell stated that declaring 30 matches as null and void wasn’t an option.

Covering today’s Hampden meeting BBC Scotland reports:

A series of meetings of the SPFL clubs has not produced the answers many were looking for over the future of Scottish football.

Each league met by video conference on Thursday, with club representatives keen to learn how the current season would be concluded.

But the meetings, described by one Premiership club representative as “underwhelming”, offered little clarity in that regard.

Financial matters are haunting every club with the tap of gate money and hospitality turned off early in March.

All clubs had four or five matches left to play while reaching the Scottish Cup Final opens up two more pay days.

How and if the current season resumes is still open to speculation with promotion, relegation and European issues up in the air while running costs at clubs, mainly in the form of wages remain constant.
