What They're Saying: Nicky Reid

"Football is in an institution no matter how you are involved, and we need to be conscious of everyone's mental well-being throughout all of this. If there's anything we can do to support that, we need to look at it. Scottish football is far better placed to support our players, management and staff through a difficult time, but that doesn't mean we couldn't be doing more."

-- Nicky Reid, Scottish Football League Trust chief executive, on the current pandemic, which represents the biggest mental health challenge in the history of Scottish soccer for players isolated and facing uncertain futures. The SPFL Trust and the Chris Mitchell Foundation have launched a two-day course for mental health first-aiders that might become mandatory for every pro club in Scotland from the start of the 2021-22 season.
