    No they won't. They will get it they qualify for it - there's a massive difference.

    If they need it they will qualify for it.

    It's quite logical that clubs will be choosing not to renew players contracts, in order to survive.

    Once they have some clarification of when they can expect to start playing again, I'd imagine they'll increase the size of their squads accordingly.

    I can see quite a few lower paid players lost to the game, though, as they might have to take up other offers of employment just to make ends meet.
    Pretty much every player in the lower leagues who are out of contract will be released. When football restarts players will be signed back up. Itís not a sign of the apocalypse.

    United we stand here....

    No they won't, Universal Credit isn't based in need.

    I donít think they will get it if they own their home? Pretty sure if you own assets you are meant to sell them first?

    Sorry if already been discussed..

    So Hibs deferred players wages? ...so all players will get the normal salary they are due in the future - say they resume training in August (when we can also sign new players if needed) ? Thatís going to be a pretty large sum of money ?

    Some Scottish clubs have furloughed players and will use the government money to help ? Does anyone know which clubs have done this ? Kilmarnock / Motherwell for example. Will that give them an unfair advantage as they have saved paying players ?

    I know the top English clubs were in the news as they are paid crazy money and morally it didnít sit well.

    I assume most staff are all furloughed - though LD still attending meetings so must be taking a full wage?

    Community foundation staff seem to be still working going by online posts.

    ....

    I think the max amount for furloughed staff is 2,500 per month, so I'd imagine it wouldn't be a particularly high amount they'll be receiving from the government.

    Their budgets are already much lower than Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs, so I don't think it would give an advantage against those three clubs.

    Obviously all just guess work, of course, as we don't know the exact details of the amounts saved.

    Just looked at this on the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52789470
    It does not make good reading, I feel a large amount of players will be looking for alternative employment in the near future.
    If teams need to prepare for the league starting whenever, I feel most will have skeleton staff of players and have to use academy players to cover for injuries and discipline.
    If the papers are right this morning, this season it may only be one league???
