Charles Green has insisted that Rangers deserve to be promoted to the second tier of Scottish football if a proposed new league structure is passed.
The Ibrox club are close to wrapping up the Third Division title, but they are set to remain in the bottom tier if the 12-12-18 structure is implemented.
The two league bodies and the Scottish Football Association have declared that the leagues would be reconstructed on sporting merit alone, should the votes go through.
But chief executive Green has argued that moving Rangers up beyond most of the current Second Division clubs would be in line with "sporting integrity".
In a statement on the Rangers website, Green said: "All things being well, Rangers should win the Division Three title.
"That being the case, we should be promoted. That should happen regardless of what league structure the powers that be put in place.
"It would be manifestly wrong to deny any team promotion having won the competition they have entered into at the start of the season.
"Equally, teams which have been relegated should not benefit unfairly from any restructuring of leagues.
"The principle of promotion and relegation for the clubs which fall into these categories at the end of this season should be enshrined in any new league set up.
"So, if, as widely predicted, we end up with a 12-12-18 set up, Rangers should be promoted and this promotion should be to the middle tier."
what do you think?
The SFA are a joke body absolutely incompetent they should order Dudcaster & his corrupt SPL that there must be promotion & relegation automatically in any restructuring.
But they will be promoted to the 3rd tier, they're in the 4th tier at present. Following his logic then the Second Division promoted teams should jump straight into the top division???
The point is we'll still b in bottom tier if this reconstuction goes ahead afta winnin the bottom tier title and that just not rite in my world!!! RTID WFTP STB
So according 2 u we r getting promotion!! How can this possibly b when we will b playing in the(BOTTOM) tier against the same clubs??Also whoever finishes bottom of 2nd division this season will b promoted then instead of relegated using (YOUR LOGIC) !! Twist it whatever way u like it's there in black n white if common sense is applied.WATP 54AC STB
