Rangers to play in Third Division

Published Add your comment

Rangers will start the new season in the Irn-Bru Third Division following a vote by Scottish Football League chairmen at Hampden.

The 30 SFL teams were voting on whether Charles Green's newco Rangers should enter the league and which division they should be placed in.

The Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football Association were hopeful Rangers would be parachuted into the First Division, with SFA chief executive Stewart Regan claiming that putting the Ibrox club into the Third Division would bring financial catastrophe and a "slow, lingering death" of the game.
