Rangers are examining “all legal options” after again calling for an independent inquiry into the SPFL’s handling of the vote to end the season outside of the Scottish top flight.
Gers, who voted against the SPFL’s successful resolution, want chief executive Neil Doncaster and legal advisor Rod McKenzie suspended while they are the “subject of forensic examination”.
It comes after manager Steven Gerrard earlier called the governing body an “absolute mess” while Partick Thistle opted not to pursue a legal case.

A statement from the Ibrox club read: “No fair-minded person can take the outcome of this vote seriously. The SPFL has conducted a process which has been misleading and deeply flawed.
“The anger of our fans is understood and shared by our board, who continue to examine all legal options available.
“The SPFL appear to have acknowledged the need for an internal investigation – but only an independent investigation will provide satisfactory, credible answers.
“We repeat our call for the immediate suspension of Neil Doncaster and Rod McKenzie pending the outcome of the independent investigation.”
Rangers were one of the clubs to provide a counter-proposal to the SPFL’s plan to call the season off, suggesting that clubs were awarded their prize money early.
But it was ruled out by the governing body, much to the Light Blues’ confusion.
“The SPFL chose to obstruct our resolution which would have given clubs the required financial support, without the pre-condition of ending the season,” their statement added.
“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 of forensic examination.”
The SPFL have been contacted for comment.
