Dunfermline players had been called
to a meeting with the club's interim administrator to learn which of
them will lose their jobs.

Players and staff reported for a 4pm
meeting with Bryan Jackson, who had warned of 'brutal' cuts after being
appointed by a court on Wednesday.

PFA Scotland chief executive Fraser Wishart and manager Jim Jefferies were also at the meeting at East End Park.

The club applied to go into administration to avert being wound up over an unpaid 134,000 tax bill.
Jackson, who has performed the same role at Clyde, Clydebank,
Motherwell, Dundee and Portsmouth, said: 'I'll be honest and say this is
as bad a situation as I've seen at a football club. It's going to be as
challenging as anything I've done in the past.
