Neil Doncaster will be backed by SPFL executives despite a statement from Rangers calling for his suspension, The Scottish Daily Mail report (14/04 print edition, back page).

The Ibrox club released a Saturday statement calling for an independent investigation into the recent conduct of the SPFL board, targeting Doncaster as potentially culpable.

It all stems from frustration surrounding last week’s club vote on an SPFL resolution, that the majority of clubs in Scotland chose to help pass.


Rangers, perhaps threatened by Celtic’s pending title win, along with others such as the relegation-threatened Hearts and Partick Thistle have been among a minority left fuming by the SPFL proposals and voting procedure.

The Daily Mail report though that Doncaster’s position as Chief Executive of the league is not under imminent threat.

It’s said the seven Championship clubs who voted for the board’s proposals will make their support for the Hampden official public once Dundee declares their final voting stance.
