Scottish Premiership clubs consider return to 5 substitutes amid fresh Covid impact fears

The Daily Record says Scotland’s top flight are considering an emergency plan to bring back the ‘five substitutes’ rule for the second half of the season amid fears that Covid could wreak havoc with the remaining fixture list.

Record Sport understands the idea has been proposed by anxious SPFL bosses as concerns grow over the potential for soaring infection rates to cause postponement carnage when the Premiership comes back out of cold storage later this month.

A raft of call-offs similar to that seen across the English game over the festive period would lead to a fixture pile up towards the end of the campaign – and leave players facing massive workloads with the increased risk of injuries and burn out.
