RANGERS are ready to submit their dossier of evidence against the SPFL in the next 72 hours.

The Ibrox club claim it will prove to all 42 member clubs about wrongdoing by the Hampden chiefs during last month’s ballot that brought an end to the season in the three divisions outwith the top flight.

The soccer bosses also have the power to bring the Premiership to a premature finish and that would inevitably mean Celtic picking up their ninth successive title after sitting on top of the table with a 13-point advantage over the Gers with only eight games to play.

The Govan club are confident they have a strong case as they push for a second independent investigation into the handling of the vote that saw Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers awarded the championships to their respective leagues.

Backed by Hearts and Stranraer, both facing relegation, they have forced an EGM involving all clubs a week on Tuesday, but will require the support of 75 per cent of the clubs to take things further.

According to a report in the Scottish Sun on Sunday, the dossier will be made public on Tuesday, giving clubs time to deliberate before deciding whether to back calls for a second SPFL probe.

In a letter to all the clubs, SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan claimed Gers risk bringing the game into disrepute and are “sowing further unnecessary division”.

The Ibrox club allege certain clubs had been “bullied” during the voting process, insisting they have “alarming” evidence which backs them.

They also called for the immediate suspension of chief executive Neil Doncaster and legal adviser Rod McKenzie.
