Charles Green insists Scottish Premier League clubs should base their votes on finance, rather than passion, when deciding whether to grant his newco Rangers entry to the top-flight.

The 12 member clubs - including 'oldco' Rangers - will meet on July 4 to cast their votes at a specially convened general meeting, with an 8-4 majority required. The Glasgow giants were replaced with `Club 12` when the fixtures were released earlier this week.

Ibrox chief executive Green told RangersTV: "Look, we've always said that we bought the club because we want to play a team in Europe, we want to rebuild the image of this club, and everybody wants to play in the Premier League."
