Rangers Sporting Director Ross Wilson has insisted Rangers still have a “very good” relationship with other clubs in Scotland after an acrimonious few months – and admitted that the club are ready to move on from the “issues” Scottish football faced.
Rangers were at the forefront of the row with the SPFL over their governance of the vote which ultimately awarded Celtic the title and Wilson is adamant that the club stands by the position it took in calling for an independent investigation.
Despite seeing it fail to gather enough support from other clubs, Wilson believes the relationship with other clubs remains “strong” and wants to build on them.
“The SPFL will tell you themselves,” Wilson told talkSPORT.
“It’s a members’ organisation, a group of clubs and from our perspective, our number one priority is Rangers always. But our relationship with other clubs is very good. We don’t have any issue with that.
“We highlighted and raised some issues, we as a club felt passionately about and we stand by them. In this day and age, it’s good for a club to have an opinion and they should stick by that.
“Our relationship with other clubs is strong and we will be delighted to keep building them as we move forward. We have plenty of friends in the game. What’s been said has been said, we stand by what we said as a club and we move on.”
Wilson’s willingness to move on and continue to build relationships would suggest that any dispute between Rangers and the SPFL over curtailing the season is now dead.
Hearts continue to push for reconstruction in a bid to save their skin from relegation but it doesn’t appear that Rangers are standing by their calls for Neil Doncaster and Murdoch MacLennan to resign from the SPFL board.
