    Partick Thistle say they have received legal advice that Dundee’s retracted no vote “must stand” and that the SPFL’s resolution on ending the lower-league season should therefore fail.

    And Thistle claim the SPFL failed to “provide sufficient information” for clubs to make an informed vote.

    The proposal to call the campaign rests on Dundee, who asked to retract their vote, according to the SPFL.

    If it is passed, Thistle face relegation from the second tier.

    It would also allow the SPFL to end the Scottish Premiership season at a later date on the same points-per-game basis if they deemed remaining games could not be played.

    Despite the requested deadline of 1700 BST on Friday, Scottish football remains in limbo, a situation that has “dismayed” Thistle.

    “The original vote by Dundee was cast in line with the SPFL’s own rules and must stand, meaning that the resolution falls,” the club’s statement said.

    The Firhill outfit, bottom of the Scottish Championship but with a game in hand, argue that the SPFL “could be in breach of duty” because the resolution stated the only way to release funds to clubs was by declaring the season over.

    “However, as it now transpires, there was a vehicle to release monies in the shape of loans, quite apart from the possibility of changes being made to the SPFL articles to allow the payments normally made at the end of the season to be made now,” Thistle added.

    “We would urge the SPFL to move immediately to approve loans to clubs against the monies owed to them at the season end, based on their current position in the league.”
