Scotland was placed in full lockdown this week but professional sport is allowed to carry on within the restrictions protocol.

Some clubs, players and managers within the league believe it isn't safe for part-time football to be played in the present circumstances, with coronavirus cases rapidly rising.

Others believe the season should be temporarily be brought to a halt until the country comes out of full lockdown,

Yet there is still a desire within the league to continue playing fixtures behind closed doors.

Fans can have their say by voting in our Highland News and Media poll, which runs until Sunday when results will be revealed.
