The Rangers dossier at the heart of their civil war with the SPFL shows questions remain over the £10million liability to BT Sport and Sky Sports for calling the season early.
The Glasgow giants failed to secure enough votes for an QC-led probe into the governing body or delay the termination of the season that led to Celtic being crowned champions on Monday.
But Scottish sources have told Football Insider how there is still concern among leading clubs including Rangers about the prize money due from broadcasters.
Publicly, the SPFL’s case was that clubs across the four professional leagues could not survive without the prize money that came from calling the season early.
Moreover, Doncaster and his allies were keen for barriers to be removed to the new £25m-a-year Sky Sports deal that comes into effect on 1 August and runs for five years.
However, that does not allay fears about the £10m of payments due to clubs from BT Sport and Sky from the current broadcasting agreement.
The Rangers dossier reveals how CEO Doncaster spoke to Ibrox managing director Stewart Robertson about awarding handing league sponsorship rights to Sky to offset the £10m liability.
Even if an agreement could be reached, there is still the issue of satisfying BT Sport.
Further possible flies in the ointment are legal challenges from Rangers and Hearts.
SPFL chiefs have been keen to paint a picture of unity and accelerating plans for the 2020-21 season to start on time, behind closed doors, in late July.
The need to keep Sky on board and operate in accordance with the contract is central as well as the short-term future of the Scottish game amid the financial chaos caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
However, there are still major issues to be addressed behind the scenes over the 2019-20 season and why it was terminated so early.
