Caley Thistle chairman Ross Morrison insists his club’s stance has not changed despite some of their Championship rivals supporting claims the Highlanders launched a proposal to null and void the season.
Morrison, left, last week refuted a national newspaper report which claimed Inverness chief executive Scot Gardiner launched the counter proposal to fellow Championship clubs in the build up to last month’s SPFL motion to end the season, which Caley Jags rejected.
Morton chief executive Dave MacKinnon subsequently backed up the claims, which were reportedly supported by six Championship clubs.
Morrison hit back at the claims in a statement on Tuesday, in which he also issued a steadfast defence of Gardiner, and he insists the club’s views have not shifted.
Morrison said: “We have done what we said we were going to do. We have always kept the same line.
“We felt the resolution was flawed to start with, and I think we have been correct in that thought.
“We have put it all down. Whatever people have said about it, we stick by what we have said. Our minds have not been changed.”
Inverness have consistently emphasised the club is in survival mode during the shutdown of Scottish football due to coronavirus, with matches having been suspended since March 13.
The eventual decision to end the Championship campaign saw Inverness miss out on five home matches which were still outstanding.
With discussions still ongoing over plans to safely restart football in Scotland, Morrison says cashflow is a concern.
He added: “With all clubs in Scottish football, from Brechin all the way up to Celtic – it’s the big unknown.
“We are in survival mode to make sure we come out ready for whenever the next season starts.
“I wish I had a crystal ball, but that’s the big problem. How do we budget for something when we don’t know when it’s going to start?
“We don’t know when we are going to start to get income.
“It’s really difficult, and it’s a bit scary.”
Inverness had outlined their support for an independent investigation, however the proposal, which was originally put forward by Rangers, was rejected by clubs in a vote last week.
Morrison has accepted the need to move on from the issue, adding: “I’m a Scottish nationalist who voted against coming out of Europe, so I’m kind of used to being on the losing side when a democratic vote comes about. We will have to live with it.”
