Wigan chairman Whelan tells Rangers to forget Premier League push
"I think the new owner of Rangers has to get real and face facts - his club plays in the Scottish Premier League. That is where they are based," said the Wigan owner and former Blackburn Rovers player.
"I am not saying it isn't a good idea for the Old Firm or for British football. I am saying it is not a good idea for English football. Our clubs would fight it tooth and nail."
