The chairman of the Queen of the South has given his backing to the new structure for football in Scotland.

Billy Hewitson said that the plans would spread television rights money more equally amongst all the clubs in the new Scottish Football League.

It's not just good for Queen of the South, it's good for Scottish football because it'll lead to a unified body and that will give it more stability.

It provides a better financial distribution model for all clubs in the league."
