CLYDE last night insisted their task of being asked to vote on whether to admit Rangers newco into the Scottish Football League is both "impossible" and would be "irresponsible" based on the information available.

Representatives from 28 SFL clubs – both Dundee and Airdrie United have been excluded from the vote due to potential conflicts of interest – will decide today whether to allow Sevco Scotland Ltd into the league and at what level. A majority of clubs are believed to favour placing Rangers into the Irn-Bru Third Division against the wishes of Stewart Regan, the Scottish Football Association chief executive, who previously warned that Scottish football would "wither on the vine" if the newco was not allowed to start life in the first division.

Clyde, though, believe that making any judgement on Rangers will require a "leap of faith" given the SFL's failure to provide sufficient details on Sevco's plans.

"We have received absolutely no information on the organisation Sevco Scotland Ltd whom we are being asked, and encouraged, to vote straight into the top division of the SFL under Resolution 2 and possibly into SFL 3 under Resolution 1," a statement read. "We have no business plan, list of directors, details of ownership, statement of capital adequacy or any proposals relating to the provision of any similar information in the near future. David Longmuir [the chief executive of the SFL] has clearly stated that he will distribute all the information he has got or is able to distribute.

"There can be no leap of faith with something as fundamental as knowing who is being admitted to the league. The very fact that there is no information of any kind being made available on this company undermines the authorities' efforts to direct the new entrant to SFL 1. It is actually impossible for any member of the SFL to make an objective assessment of the proposals under Resolutions 1 and 2 and could be seen as irresponsible to support either proposal in such a void of information."

Clyde also added that, unless information was made available before this morning's meeting, they could see no way that Rangers could be permitted to be parachuted into the second tier of Scottish football.

The statement added: "It is our hope that some credibility can be introduced to this process and we would ask that whoever holds information on Sevco Scotland Ltd provides a full and detailed pack to David Longmuir in order that, even at the 11th hour, the SFL clubs are given reason to support any Resolutions that they might wish to vote on. We have to assume that the SFA and SPL hold such information otherwise they would not press so heavily for entry to SFL 1.

"If a leap of faith is to be taken, then in the current circumstances it will be taken blindly and the only logical outcome of taking that kind of risk would be to enter them to SFL 3, where, should any subsequent issues arise they will be contained within the lowest league rather than disrupting the top flight of the SFL.

"The other matter that is entirely outside the gift of the SFL is the need for the SPL clubs to confirm that contrary to what Neil Doncaster stated on their behalf, the SPL will meet its obligations to the SFL under the Settlement Agreement."

Rangers elected not to respond to Clyde's comments but hoped today's vote would allow them to move forward with planning for the new season. "As you are aware, there is a meeting [today] with the SFL board and member clubs to discuss which division Rangers will play in next season," read a statement. "Following that meeting we hope to be in a position to provide greater clarity on season ticket renewals, pricing and payment processes - which will be communicated directly with season ticket holders. The Club would like to thank season ticket holders once again for their patience during this difficult period."

The SFL clubs have been asked to consider a number of legally non-binding proposals which, if approved, would see Rangers start in the first division. They include a £1m payment from the SPL for broadcasting rights, the possibility of end-of-season play-offs, league reconstruction including an extended top division, the merger of the SFL and the SPL, and the introduction of a pyramid system and parachute payments. If consensus can not be reached on these matters by the end of November, the SFA will look to implement a new structure in time for the 2013/2014 season.
