The administrators of Rangers have held talks with the Scottish Government as they began the process of trying to sort the club's finances.

Officials from Duff and Phelps spoke to Scottish sports minister Shona Robison a day after being appointed by the club. The group had already held discussions with Strathclyde Police on Tuesday to ensure the club's Clydesdale Bank Premier League home clash with Kilmarnock would go ahead after the force expressed concern over payments.

Robison said: "In a telephone conversation this morning with the administrator, I explained that we want to see an outcome in the best interests of Rangers staff, supporters and the game of football in Scotland as a whole, whilst enabling the club to meet its obligations."
