Scottish FA and SPFL bosses are taking pay cuts, according to a report, as football looks to survive the Covid-19 crisis with Rangers and the remaining 41 clubs still waiting to find out the outcome of the season.
According to STV, SFA president Rod Petrie and vice-president Mike Mulraney are taking a 20% pay cut alongside SPFL chairman Murdoch McLennan while the remaining 80% will be deferred for three months.
The remaining staff at the SPFL will take 10% cuts to their wages with some also waiving pay increases and bonuses.
In addition to the reports by STV, Radio Clyde claim that Scotland boss Steve Clarke and SFA chief executive Ian Maxwell will also take 10% cuts to their wages.
Clubs across the planet are looking how to cut costs with no income looking likely for several months and staff wages still falling due.
Rangers have yet to make any formal comment on possible wage cuts but it seems inevitable with the club already needing to fund a shortfall through director loans.
With football likely to be on the shelf until August at the very earliest, there needs to be some drastic actions taken soon if football is to come through the global crisis relatively unscathed.
