Rangers no longer a SPL club

With the new fixtures out yesterday in the Scottish Premier League (SPL) Rangers place has been given to "Club 12".

The SPL Board met yesterday and gave 14 days notice that the eleven clubs will meet on July 4th to determine Rangers fate.

The club may have to start the season in the fourth tier of Scottish Football bring much financial relief to the SFL3 minnows.

Rangers were bought by Charles Green's consortium last week and have formed a new company that will have to re-apply for SPL membership.

Rangers confirmed: "The SPL are replacing Rangers with 'Club 12' in the official list of fixtures for the 2012/13 season, which are released yesterday.

"The governing body is sticking to the schedule of announcing the matches as planned but have taken the Ibrox men out of the list after the developments of last week, which saw Rangers FC change ownership under a newco scenario.

"The Sevco consortium headed by Charles Green completed the purchase of the club and its assets last week when HMRC refused to support an exit from administration through CVA."

"They are now seeking to transfer the SPL share from the old company - Rangers Football Club plc - to the new company, The  Rangers Football Club."
