The Staggies’ last home game of the season has been moved to Friday, April 26, meaning that they will have played just three home Saturday afternoon matches since the turn of the year when the season ends.

Ferguson says the decision was taken out of the club’s hands, insisting: “We’re as annoyed as they are.

“We tried to fight it again, like we’ve tried two or three times this season, and had no impact, nobody is listening.

“We’re getting no more money from television. There’s not a carrot getting dangled, it’s just the thing that people agreed.

“It will have an affect on us financially as a football club, and it will also have an affect more so on the fans, they’re the ones I feel sorry for.

“Queen of the South won’t be overly enamoured by it either.”
