Doncaster ‘very pleased by clear result’

Rangers say “the status quo cannot hold” despite SPFL clubs rejecting their call for an independent inquiry into the vote to end the season.

Thirteen clubs backed Rangers, Hearts and Stranraer’s call for an inquiry, with 27 against and two abstentions.

The Ibrox club said the vote “has erased the false narrative of this issue simply being a conflict between one club and the SPFL”.

It added that many member clubs had lost faith in the SPFL leadership.

Following a vote at Tuesday’s EGM on whether April’s ballot to end the lower league season should be investigated, SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan said the game “cannot afford the distraction of further infighting or legal challenges”.

However, Rangers said there are “serious issues and failings which remain to be addressed”.

“All we sought was urgently required scrutiny, respect for all member clubs, fairness and transparency,” the club said in a statement.
