Scottish Premier League clubs have taken on responsibility for deciding on newco applications but have rejected plans for fixed penalties for such clubs, chief executive Neil Doncaster has announced.

That means the clubs themselves will vote on whether to admit Charles Green's Rangers into the SPL if he fails to secure a deal with creditors and buys the club's assets through a new company.

The decision was formerly in the hands of the six-man SPL board and clubs will also decide what, if any, sanctions a newco club would receive.
