He spoke after clubs voted against a proposal from Rangers to carry out an independent inquiry into the SPFL ballot which ended the season for the Championship. League One and League Two.

It has been confirmed 13 clubs voted for the independent inquiry, 27 voted against, while two clubs abstained from voting at today's EGM.

Now MacGregor hopes clubs will now work together to secure the future of Scottish football.

He said: “Following today’s SPFL vote, we hope this will now allow all of the clubs and authorities to move forward together to find the best solutions for securing the safety of our game here in Scotland.

"The current pandemic is the biggest threat that has ever faced Scottish Football and we need to all come together to ensure we come out of this at the other end, protect as many jobs as possible and

ensure that our game can prosper when we get back to action.

"Failing to address the key vulnerabilities for clubs and leagues at this time, and how we plan for the future, could have a detrimental effect on how we come out of this and that should be of central importance right now.

"Today a decision has been reached in regard to the independent enquiry and in the interests of democracy we hope this decision is accepted by all and that we can move on from this and come

together to secure the future of Scottish Football.

"As a club we have already started our forward planning with the introduction of our Staggies Army which will provide essential revenues for the club at this time and we continue to encourage as

many fans as possible to join the initiative and reap the rewards as well as supporting our club."
