Rangers have been dramatically kicked out of next season's Scottish Premier League after rival clubs voted overwhelmingly to exclude the ailing Glasgow giants.

The soon-to-be-liquidated Ibrox club applied to rejoin the league after reforming as a new company (newco) but their request was turned down following a vote of the other clubs that make up the Scottish top-flight.

"At today's General Meeting, SPL clubs today voted overwhelmingly to reject the application from Rangers newco to join the SPL," an SPL statement said.

The statement came after more than five hours of talks at Hampden as Rangers' new management clung on to the hope of staving off exclusion.

It caps a humiliating fall from grace for the most successful club in Scottish football history, who were plunged into crisis earlier this year after entering administration following a tax dispute.

It was not immediately clear where Rangers' new incarnation will begin life next season. One option under consideration is to start in the First Division, the league below the SPL.

Rangers chief executive Charles Green reacted to Wednesday's snub by confirming that Rangers would apply to join the Scottish Football League (SFL).

"We are deeply disappointed that our application to rejoin the SPL has been rejected overwhelmingly by the member clubs," Green said in a statement.

"We will now proceed as we had planned from late June to apply for membership of the SFL.

"It is entirely a matter for them whether our application will be accepted or rejected and we will make no representation to any member club prior to that application being considered.

"If our application were to be accepted, Rangers will play in whichever division the SFL sees fit and we will move forward from there."

The SPL, SFL and Scottish Football Association (SFA) are all mulling the First Division option, which would also include significant league reform and £1 million ($A1.5 million) payment for the second tier's television rights.

Safeguarding the multimillion-dollar commercial deals on which all of Scotland's professional clubs rely so heavily is central to the issue, with a new TV deal worth £80 million over five seasons reputedly dependent on the screening of four Rangers v Celtic Old Firm derbies a season.

Broadcasters are said to be prepared to go no more than one year without these showcase matches, meaning Rangers may end up in the First Division.

But clubs in the lower leagues are already speaking out against the prospect of Rangers going straight into the First Division, despite being told by the SFL that their own existence would be at risk if Rangers are forced to start in the Third Division.

The view of many lower league clubs is that Rangers should be forced to start from the bottom of the league ladder, as has happened in the past when clubs have been punished for financial mismanagement.

Weary Rangers fans meanwhile have expressed a preference for starting from scratch in the Third Division.

A poll of season-ticket holders conducted by the Rangers Fans Fighting Fund voted 75 per cent in favour of dropping down to the bottom tier.
Yikes.

Athletic just lost one of the world's best coaches over an argument with a construction worker ny

Wonder if we'll see Llorente or Martinez leave now.

This is quite possibly the most ridiculous way to lose a manager I've ever heard of, let alone a manager in Marcelo Biesla's class. I read he handed a resignation letter to the board. I think they haven't made a decision on it yet. Either way, losing a manager due to an altercation between him and a construction company worker is atrocious.

Unbelievable.

Quote:
As supporters of Blackburn Rovers drifted away from Ewood Park on the night of May 7th 2012, following a home defeat to Wigan Athletic, which confirmed the clubs relegation from the Premiership, little did they know that their very safety had been put at risk as the club refused to evacuate the Darwen End, despite calls from fire experts for this to happen.

As smoke bellowed from the Darwen End during the second half, active serving, senior fire fighters were concerned enough to call for an immediate evacuation of the stand. As all the fire stewards on duty rushed to the Darwen End, calls for an evacuation were both ignored and refused.

As young fans were in apparent ‘distress’ and Records should show a number of respiratory conditions were treated by medical teams during this incident, a source on duty that night claims “Control Room staff seemed more interested in monitoring the home fans protests in the lower tier of the Darwen End, than the smoke logged upper six rows of the top tier of the same stand.”

An active serving fire fighter who contacted the BRFC Action Group said he had “heard damning evidence over the radio which have led me to believe that preventing peaceful protest was prioritised over spectator safety” and that “my experience led me to consider that this could be a terrorist attack, or a genuine fire.”

The source went on to claim “The smoke given off was thick and acrid – whether toxic or not, it had the potential to cause panic – potentially another Hillsborough situation”. He also concluded “To treat home fans poorly by muffling their protestations and ignoring their views is bad enough, but to do so at the cost of the safety of people under their care is criminal”

A BRFC Action Group Spokesperson said:

“After receiving intelligence from club officials and speaking to numerous people who were on duty that night, we are absolutely horrified that supporter safety was put at risk by the control room of Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

Not only do we have a large number of our group members situated in this area but many supporters regardless of their affiliation to supporters groups, who’s well-being was put at risk that night by the recklessness of those staff in the control room, who it is claimed were more interested in muffling the supporters right to protest than the incident in hand, which qualified serving fire fighters deemed serious enough to call for an evacuation.

The claims made by our source, that the Stadium Manager John Newsham, who is no longer with the club and his team had been following orders from above to prioritise preventing protests, ahead of supporter safety is of massive concern to us, as an FSF affiliated supporters group.

The information passed to the BRFC Action Group, describes sheer gross-negligence on behalf of Blackburn Rovers Football Club. As a group we took this information to the sports governing bodies and personally handed it over to the Chief Executive of the Premier League, the Minister for Sport and the Football Association, whom were equally as horrified. We have also tried to discuss this incident with Blackburn Rovers who declined to comment on the matter. The incident has now been reported to the HSE.

The safety of our supporters when attending Ewood Park is of paramount importance and if this is no longer high on the priority list of our football club then questions must be answered and investigations opened”.
Fire shown starting at 12:00, frightening. It's blowing out of the stand!
