Morton: Gers must start from bottom

Morton have added their voice to Scottish Football League clubs who will object to newco Rangers playing in the Irn-Bru First Division next season.

Charles Green's Sevco company purchased the business and assets of Rangers earlier this month after the club were consigned to liquidation. But his application for entry to the Scottish Premier League appears doomed after six of the 12 top-flight clubs went public with plans to reject the bid ahead of a formal vote on July 4.

Raith Rovers and Falkirk have stated their objection to a deal which could see the newco entering the SFL's First Division instead of applying to join the Third Division - a stance Morton agree with. A statement from chairman Douglas Rae read: "There has been much speculation and discussion regarding exactly where the Newco Rangers will ply their trade next season."
