It was also announced at the governing body’s AGM on Tuesday that clubs unanimously approved permanent concussion substitutes to be used across all four leagues.

A statement read: « At the meeting clubs also voted [unanimously] to approve a recommendation from the Competitions Working Group that the new protocol in the IFAB Laws of the Game permitting permanent concussion substitutes is used across all senior SPFL competitions.

« Each team will be allowed one concussion substitute per match in addition to the normal number of substitutes and substitution opportunities. If that concussion substitute is used, the other team is allowed an additional substitute. This follows a trial of permanent concussion substitutes in the SPFL, which first launched in March 2021. »
