Rangers refuse to hand over evidence of mismanagement to the SPFL

Rangers are refusing to hand over evidence to the SPFL - which they claim proves mismanagement of the league vote - until their call for an independent investigation is met. It comes following a resolution was proposed to all clubs that would grant the governing body the power to end the Premiership season in the same manner at a later date. 

The Premiership and clubs in League One and Two have backed the plan with the required 75 per cent of the vote but it now rests on one Championship club, with seven having voted for it and two against.

Dundee’s vote appears crucial to the outcome of the SPFL’s plan and is believed to be the absent one from the Championship, even though their club secretary Eric Drysdale is alleged to have given other clubs his “solemn word” that he submitted their ‘no’ vote.  The Athletic claims they have seen copies of three voting slips, including one from Dundee which is signed and dated by their managing director John Nelms on April 10, 2020 and shows a tick in the ‘no’  box.
