Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster insists Dundee deserve their place in the top flight under "sporting merit" despite protestations from Dunfermline.

Irn-Bru First Division runners-up Dundee were invited to replace soon-to-be-liquidated Rangers on Monday following the SPL's annual general meeting. The decision was backed by clubs but appeared to have been taken weeks ago in discussions between the SPL, Scottish football Association and Scottish Football League executives.

Doncaster said: "The clubs looked at it and overwhelmingly they felt that on sporting merit, Dundee had the best case and that's why they have received the invite."
