Revealed: The Rangers feud twist that's left Charlie Nicholas fearing 'Carnage'
Rangers are poised to go public today with their dossier against SPFL chiefs Neil Doncaster and Rod MacKenzie as Charlie Nicholas fears it will cause “carnage”.
Following a series of delays, the Ibrox giants are finally set to unveil their alleged evidence against the officials as clubs prepare for an EGM on 12 May to decide whether the league’s governing body should be investigated.
An Scottish source has told Football Insider that the SPFL are expected to hold back on ending the season prematurely until the vote on the Rangers dossier takes place.
Premiership clubs are set to meet later this week to discuss ending the season following what are expected to be discussions with the Scottish government.
SPFL chairman MacLennan countered allegations of “bullying and coercion” influencing the controversial season-ending vote by answering his own questions in a 3000-word document last week.
The Rangers dossier could prove crucial although former Celtic striker Nicholas has all-but abandoned hope of the season being finished.

He told The Express: “I had hoped the Scottish season would be finished but I just don’t see it happening now. Not enough people now want the season to be completed.
“The season can’t be called until Rangers show their evidence.
“If it is strong enough it will cause carnage but if not then it will be batted away and then I believe the season will be called like it has been in the lower leagues and Celtic will be named as champions.
“Scottish football is totally collapsing, just at a time when we are heading towards ‘Project Restart’ in England. It is all about positives in England but up here it is the exact opposite.”
It is expected the 42 league clubs will first vote on 12 May on Rangers’ requisition to put CEO Doncaster and legal adviser MacKenzie on trial by an independent QC led investigation.
The extraordinary general meeting set for next week has clouded the issue for the completion of the Scottish Premiership even though the SPFL has secured a mandate to call the season early.
Celtic and Rangers are among the clubs keen to establish a date by which it needs to be ended.
In other Rangers, it can be REVEALED that the club have been tipped to battle it out to sign Aberdeen star.
