SPL chief Doncaster insists: Rangers situation is not a shambles

Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster has refused to bow to pressure that the current Rangers situation is shambolic.

League chairmen held a five-hour meeting yesterday but had to again delay the announcement of the financial sanctions which would be imposed on 'Gers for their administration and tax worries.

Rangers administrators Duff & Phelps have asked for a summit of Scotland's 12 clubs to occur on May 30 with Doncaster remaining positive about finding a solution.

"It would be unfair to call it a shambles. We realise feelings run very high on this matter," he said.

"There's a huge amount of frustration, but these are serious issues that affect millions of people.

"The administrators requested we adjourn the meeting and we unanimously agreed with that request.

"There was a long discussion about the possible transfer to a newco, but as yet there hasn't been any request regarding that.

"However the clubs did agree any transfer of shares to a newco should be decided upon by all the clubs and not just the SPL board.

"For that rule change to take effect requires 21 days' notice, which is why we've adjourned.

"Any change would require an 8-4 majority."
