It is expected that the EGM will reconvene at 3pm for the results.

Rangers’ resolution requires the 75 per cent support from clubs in each of the four divisions to force a new investigation.

Interim Ibrox chairman Douglas Park has vowed to cover the cost of an independent investigation overseen by a QC.

This comes as the civil war engulfing the Scottish game continues to see the Light Blues try and remove Neil Doncaster and SPFL legal adviser Rod McKenzie for “bullying” and “alarming” governance.

The SPFL have hit back in a series of statements and interviews from Doncaster.

The executive’s stance is that the Rangers ‘dossier’ released last week has failed to identify a single shred of evidence to support the club’s vociferous claims of corruption, bullying and coercion by SPFL staff.

In other Rangers, it can be REVEALED that the club are working on signing striker who’s gone to a new level this season.
