Dunfermline chairman John Yorkston will demand sporting integrity when the Scottish Premier League meet to discuss financial fair play rules which could have a significant impact on Rangers' future.
The 12 Clydesdale Bank Premier League clubs were set to discuss proposals that could result in tougher sanctions for clubs who go into administration or liquidation at last Monday's general meeting at Hampden.
Yorkston told Scotland on Sunday: "Everyone agrees that there should be severe punishment, but there are a number of chairmen who will look at the financial thing and say, 'do we want an SPL without Rangers?' It will be a question of sporting integrity against financial necessity. That is the choice facing chairmen."
