Crisis club Rangers have been refused admission into the Scottish Premier League next season.

“SPL clubs today voted overwhelmingly to reject the application from Rangers newco to join the SPL” – SPL statement

That follows SPL clubs assembling to decide whether Rangers’ ‘newco’ should be allowed to replace Glasgow Rangers in the top-flight. However, they “voted overwhelmingly” against the proposal.

“At today’s General Meeting, SPL clubs today voted overwhelmingly to reject the application from Rangers newco to join the SPL,” a statement from the SPL read.

Either relegated Dunfermline Athletic or first division runners-up Dundee will replace Rangers, who must now try and find a division of the Scottish Football League to actually accept them.

Eleven out of the thirty clubs have already indicated their opposition to Rangers entering Division One, with a vote scheduled to take place next week.
