SPL to decide Rangers replacement

Wed 11th Jul 2012 | Football Governance

The decision on who will replace Rangers in the Scottish Premier League is to be made on Monday.

Rangers finished second in the SPL last season but the club has subsequently been liquidated, leaving a vacancy to be filled by another side.

The newco version of the Ibrox outfit applied for a place back in the division, only to be 'overwhelmingly rejected' and have now set their sights on the Scottish Football League.

Bottom club Dunfermline have been vocal in their claims that they should be reinstated to the top flight with Rangers effectively becoming the relegated team instead.

But other Scottish clubs are believed to favour promoting Dundee, who finished as runners-up in the Scottish second tier last season.

The decision will be made on July 16.
