However the SFA believe it is unlikely the season will be able to restart on that date as the peak of the coronavirus will not have been reached.

Football in Scotland was suspended indefinitely six days ago as part of measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

But the SFA says it remains their intention to begin the 2020-21 season as soon as iS practicably possible later this year.

The statement said: The Scottish FA reiterates that all football in Scotland, both domestic and professional, remains suspended indefinitely.

"For the benefit of planning, the Scottish FA confirms that football in Scotland will not resume before April 30.

"The medical advice is that we will not have reached the peak of the coronavirus epidemic in this country by then and the escalating measures which restrict the ability to play football matches will likely remain in force.

"The progress of COVID-19 remains uncertain for the whole country, but we are maintaining daily dialogue informed by the latest government and UK Medical Officers advice, to provide reassurance that the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority, along with the survival of clubs."
