Hearts and Partick Thistle were officially relegated from the Premier League and Championship today after losing their appeal to an arbitration panel.

The clubs took action after being losing their status when last season was terminated before all fixtures had been fulfilled because of the coronavirus.

The two clubs wanted the Court of Session to reverse the promotions of Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers.

But a three-strong panel ruled that the SPFL were entitled to act as they did.
