SCOTTISH football is in turmoil after Rangers’ call for SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster to be suspended.

The Ibrox club have called for an investigation into their handling of Friday’s vote on a resolution to end the season in the three leagues outwith the Premiership immediately.

The situation regarding the top flight clubs would be addressed later this month.

Amid the uncertainty of the season coming to a premature conclusion during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, chaos has now broken out with Gers at war with the game’s governing body.

Ibrox interim chairman Douglas Park, who took over when David King resigned last month, as Scotzinereported, insists his club have clear evidence of wrong-doing by the football rulers.

The Sunday Mail have today published an image of Dundee’s signed voting slip, rejecting the league’s plan – and, therefore, wiping out the proposal. Partick Thistle and Inverness Caley have already voted against the Championship resolution with the ballot standing at 7-2. If the Dark Blues line up with the Firhill side, who are facing relegation to the third tier, and the Highlanders it will scupper the plan.

Leaked Whatsapp messages from Dens Park secretary Eric Drysdale apparently also confirm how and when their vote was cast.

However, the SPFL are adamant that it wasn’t received and the Tayside outfit, who have 28 days to consider their next move, will deliberate before notifying the SPFL hierarchy.

Rangers insist Doncaster and legal advisor Rod McKenzie should be suspended pending an enquiry.
