Rangers fans are incensed at both the speed and the content of the SPFL’s response to the club’s accusations of wrongdoing.

After several weeks of build-up, on Tuesday morning, the Gers distributed a dossier of evidence to all other 41 SPFL member clubs.

The lengthy document which reportedly consists of over 200 pages, makes a series of allegations against chief executive Neil Doncaster, and the wider organisation [Daily Record].

The SPFL are accused of, amongst other things, failing to report accusations of bullying by member clubs, of making misleading comments to UEFA surrounding the resolution to end leagues and of plotting negotiations on broadcasting rights without notifying clubs.

It’s further suggested that executives failed to mention a £10 million liability to broadcasters and sponsors for ending the season early.

The SPFL issued a response remarkably quickly, utterly dismissing all the accusations.


“Since Rangers publicly demanded the suspension of the SPFL’s chief executive and legal counsel, everyone in Scottish football has waited patiently for them to present their case,” read the statement, as quoted by BBC Scotland.

“However, an initial examination of their ‘dossier’ has failed to identify a single shred of evidence to support Rangers’ vociferous claims of corruption, bullying and coercion by SPFL staff.

“If Rangers have any good reason for Neil Doncaster and Rod McKenzie to be suspended, we have yet to see it.”

The statement has incensed Bears on social media.

Many have questioned how the document could have been read in its entirety so quickly, while others have accused the organisation of plotting to cover up wrongdoing.

Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:
