Rangers are convinced a 50 per cent vote in favour of a second independent probe into the bungled SPFL vote could help trigger the dismissal of Neil Doncaster.

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

That is regarded as unlikely despite a number of Scottish professional clubs coming out in public support of Rangers’ proposal.

Nevertheless, Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that the club’s legal advisers believe they have a “reasonably good prospect” of obtaining an order for the removal of Doncaster for being in breach of his duties as a director.

Should half of the 42 member clubs vote in favour of an investigation tomorrow, Rangers believe that will set the ball rolling for a change of regime.

It is said that would constitute a vote of no confidence in the SPFL board led by long-standing chief executive Doncaster.

Interim Rangers 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 Doncaster.

They claim the SPFL executive is damaged beyond repair and have called for the CEO and legal adviser Rod McKenzie to be suspended 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 Aberdeen player who’s gone to a new level this season.
