In midweek Leeann Dempster predicted that a meteor was on its way to Scottish football.

Yesterday on Off The Ball with and Stuart Cosgrove she admitted that she is now thinking of playing football in July or August.

Much will depend on the approach of the but if football resumes in any form in there is bound to be pressure to get matches played in Scotland.

It might not be the most politically correct view but the return of football will provide a welcome distraction from news bulletins, debates on PPE and testing. Politicians of all colours are of deflection.

Dempster quit her role on the Task Force looking at league to deal with bigger issues, yesterday the Hibs CEO told BBC Scotland:

It might well be that things that even I didn’t want to do four or five weeks ago, which is think about playing these games in July or August, I’m now starting to look at that and thinking is it practical to do that?
