Danny Mills insisted there is “a very, very fine line” between bullying and applying pressure after Rangers released their much-awaited dossier to the SPFL.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former England international suggested opinion will be split after reading the evidence released today as bullying is a subjective concept.
The Gers today published the dossier, which they claim, brings into question last month’s vote that saw the lower leagues ended and the door opened to Celtic being crowned champions and Hearts being relegated from the Scottish Premiership.
The SPFL, upon reading the dossier, insisted there is no evidence to support the claims of bullying or coercion.
According to the Daily Record, the dossier reveals the SPFL failed to disclose the £10million amount that can be reclaimed by broadcasters if the season is incompleted.
When asked by Football Insider for his reaction to the latest in the whistleblower saga, Mills said: “It depends what they call pressure, what they call lobbying and what they call bullying. It is subjective.
“It is difficult. Sometimes it comes down to what is banter and what is bullying. There is often a very, very fine line and at some point pressure becomes bullying.
“The biggest problem is that it is subjective and until we know exactly what was said, to who from whom, we are speculating.”

The Gers reiterated there stance on Twitter today and have doubled down in their efforts for an independent investigation to be launched against Neil Doncaster and legal advisor Rod McKenzie.
The 41 other SPFL clubs are examining the dossier and a vote has been set for May 12 to determine whether an independent investigation is required.
