The Scottish Football Association has announced that it is making available a "panic button" application on its website.
As concerns mount at the increasing number of clubs who could slip into administration, the football authorities up North are making available the facility to any accountant who feels that their club is struggling to meet its financial commitments.
In these circumstances the accountant merely presses the panic button and the application, once installed, appears on the club's homepage to say that the SFA financial board "is in control online".
While some clubs will inevitably resent the intrusiveness of such a facility, its anticipated that most club officials will welcome the development as an important tool in the battle against insolvency.
Rangers, Dundee United and Dunfermline are allegedly very interested in getting more information on the subject.
