Two more Scottish Football League clubs have come out against the idea of a newco Rangers joining the Irn-Bru First Division amid speculation that some Clydesdale Bank Premier League clubs are on the verge of a U-turn.
Stranraer and Stirling both said Charles Green's club should have to apply for membership of the Irn-Bru Third Division ahead of Tuesday's Hampden meeting of SFL clubs. Six others have already stated their opposition while Airdrie have vowed to abstain as they would be promoted should the Ibrox club be denied SPL and First Division status.
No vote will be taken at the meeting but the SPL clubs will be hugely interested in any feedback 24 hours ahead of their vote on Green's application to join the top-flight.
