Rangers claim to have obtained evidence from an SPFL whistleblower which the club deem serious enough to call for Doncaster’s immediate suspension.
Alongside SPFL legal advisor Rod McKenzie, Rangers interim chairman Douglas Park has requested Doncaster is relieved of his duties [Rangers] whilst an independent investigation is carried out.
“The lack of leadership and responsibility from the SPFL as a members’ organisation has shocked me,” said Douglas Park.
“If ever there was a time for complete openness and transparency, it is now.
“Crucial decisions are being made on the issues of promotion and relegation behind closed doors and without proper time for consideration or debate.
“The farcical conduct of this affair seems to me to bring the corporate governance and business operations of the SPFL into sharp focus.
“It is an example of an undemocratic culture, which has existed within the SPFL for far too long.
“As a member club, we are disturbed by the evidence that has been presented and feel there is no choice but to call for an independent investigation into this entire matter.
“Other member clubs, who have seen the evidence we hold, share our concerns.
“We call for the suspension of the SPFL’s Chief Executive, Neil Doncaster and its legal adviser, Rod McKenzie while an independent investigation is conducted.”
