Keep the league as it is until the split.
After the split the bottom six play as before to determine relegation.
However the top six move into a play off scenario.
Game A. 3rd place plays 6th place at home
Game B. 4th place plays 5th place at home
Rest week for 1st and second place
Game C. 1st place plays winner of Game B at home
Game D. 2nd place plays winner of Game A at home
Game E. Loser of Game A v loser of game B with the highest ranking team playing at HOME. This is the six and fifth place play off.
Game F. Winner of game C plays winner of game D to decide league winner. Highest ranking team plays at home.
Game G. Loser of game C plays loser of game D to decide 3rd and 4th place. Highest ranking team plays at home.
Piss easy to implement and it still acknowledges the old firms financial power by potentially giving them home advantage and less games to win the league assuming they are 1st and 2nd after the split, but at the same time gives any team making the top six a realistic chance to win the league.
Appreciate that the team in sixth will end up with no home games after the split and thus less income, but if you can't accept that sacrifice for a chance to win the league then your club shouldn't exist.
Surely the broadcasters would eat this up as most of the games would be massive.
If the old firm can't agree to that, then we quit the league.
