Rangers' demise has not caused the feared financial catastrophe on the top flight in Scotland, Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster insisted.

Doncaster said the fact that SPL finances have held up overall proved that Scottish football is not all about the Old Firm.

Doncaster told the Leaders in Football conference in London: "There was a real fear over the summer that the demise of Rangers, effectively demoted to the fourth tier of Scottish football, would lead to a real concern about the financial position across the whole of the game in Scotland."
