Clydesdale Bank Premier League clubs have voted "overwhelmingly" to reject the newco Rangers application.
The SPL announced the news in a brief statement after more than five hours of talks at Hampden.
SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster earlier hinted the vote could be deferred amid fears over the financial consequences of the Ibrox club starting their new life in the Third Division, but clubs carried through their vow to deny Charles Green's bid.
