Rangers considering legal action over votes process which could hand Celtic title

Gerrard has some strong words for SPFL (Sky Sports) Rangers have declared they will consider “all legal options” open to them in order to challenge the SPFL’s controversial resolution vote and to ensure the 2019-20 Premiership season is played to a finish on the pitch. Rangers have repeated their demands for an independent investigation into the process which led to Dundee being able to withdraw the initial ‘No’ vote they cast last Friday and then change their mind to provide the decisive ‘Yes’ which pushed the plan through on Wednesday. ___________________________________________________ More on coronavirus: ____________________________________________________ Partick Thistle, one of the other seven clubs who opposed the resolution along with Rangers, have decided not to take legal action against the SPFL despite being informed by a senior QC they have a strong case. “In particular, publishing the outcome prior to all clubs having voted has undermined the democratic process and demonstrated unacceptable standards of corporate governance by the SPFL executive. The fact that this solution was not afforded sufficient consideration defies belief and further underlines the view held by many clubs that the processes and behaviours of certain individuals must now be the subject offorensic examination. “We repeat our call for the immediate suspension of (chief executive) Neil Doncaster and (legal counsel) Rod McKenzie pending the outcome of the independent investigation.”
