Rangers could have at least 30 points deducted next term - SPL chief

Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster has suggested that Rangers could lose as many as 30 points next season if their current financial situation does not improve.

The reigning champions lost 10 points early last month after falling into administration and could delve further into trouble next term when the rules change this summer.

"Under current rules if Rangers are still in administration next season they will be docked ten points at the start of the season," Doncaster said.

"But the rules could change in April or July. With regards to financial fair play we didn't talk about a specific club.

"These are just general rules we may adopt in the future.

"Our board will propose a number of changes."

The new rules could include a further sanction of 20 points which would roughly be a third of the points total Rangers have won the title with over the past three seasons.
