Officials from the Scottish Football Association will meet Police Scotland later to discuss allegations of child sex abuse within the sport.
Football has been shaken by claims from former players, from across the UK, that they were abused by those in positions of authority.
Deputy First Minister John Swinney has called for the SFA to set up an independent inquiry.
The SFA said any review must have the “right scope and terms of reference”.
Police forces from across the UK, including Police Scotland, are now looking into claims of historical sexual abuse within football.
In a statement on Sunday, the SFA said: “We are open to the possibility of an independent review but with the right scope and terms of reference.”
Former Scottish justice minister Cathy Jamieson told BBC Radio Scotland it may be time for a wider inquiry into the historical sex abuse of children in Scotland, which the Scottish government, or Holyrood, could take the lead on.
“There will be, inevitably, some other organisation, or some other sphere, where historical abuse will raise its head,” she said.
Speaking on the Good Morning Scotland programme, she added: “That is why it would be important to have an over-arching look at all these inquiries, and if government won’t do that, and I believe they could have a role to do this, then perhaps the Parliament should step up and do it.”
Opposition parties have called for the Scottish government, rather than the SFA, to take the lead on any inquiry.
