Rangers not being in the SPL will hurt the other teams financially. Gate receipts from games against Rangers compared to either Dunfermline or Dundee from home & away fans will drop dramatically, and I don't know when the TV deal is up but that will be considerably less when it's renegotiated. There may even be a get out clause for a situation like this. Aside from fighting for second spot, there is no other benefit for the other teams.
