Newco Rangers chief executive Charles Green is confident Clydesdale Bank Premier League club chairmen will listen to his pleas to consider the impact on Scottish football when he presents his application to join the league.
Motherwell are to become the eighth SPL club to confirm their opposition to the plan, 24 hours before members vote.
Green is also struggling to garner support from Scottish Football League clubs for a plan to put his club in the Irn-Bru First Division, but he told www.rangers.co.uk: "I know the chairmen will listen. The problem some of them have to a lesser degree than I have here is fan pressure."
