Tv deal doesnít come into it. Thatís included in the prize money. The vast majority of SPFL clubs make more money from the league cup. Most of them would sacrifice the Scottish rather than the league cup, especially in these tough times.

Any games live on tele the teams get a cut of. Of course it comes into it. Most of the lower leagues only get the chance to play rangers or Celtic away in the Scottish, as they get pumped out the league cup in the groups. The Scottish cup isnít about the top clubs, itís about every single club thatís eligible for it, and to cut the majority of them out would be shambolic.
