The chaos in Scottish football continues, and it is Glasgow Rangers who helped to light the touch paper.
The ‘Gers first aired their problems against the SPFL following the resolution proposal vote, which saw Dundee’s decision first not registered and then miraculously changed a week later. The Ibrox outfit accused the governing body of corruption, with them even demanding an independent investigation into the affairs of the authority – in the end, though, only 12 other sides agreed with them.
Hearts and Partick Thistle will now face an arbitration panel as they look to overturn the SPFL’s decision to relegate them despite the season not being completed. Dundee United, Cove Rangers and Raith Rovers all have a vested interest – if Hearts and Partick are not demoted, those three will likely not be promoted.
Do you think an SFA arbitration panel will rule in favour of Hearts and Partick?
That trio, however, are struggling to pay the legal fees and have therefore asked the rest of the clubs in Scottish football to help them foot the bill. Falkirk, though, have shared on Twitter that they do not intend to help those teams out.
This has attracted the attention of some ‘Gers supporters and it seems they are delighted with Falkirk’s move – as they wanted to end the season on the pitch, they do not believe those clubs should be awarded promotion. They have taken to the social media platform to share their thoughts and you can see some of the best comments below:

Quite right, they were big enough to appoint a lawyer so now they can pay him

The sooner Doncaster goes the better. Every day something else emerges & the bitterness just below the surface right now in Scottish football is coming to the surface. Doncaster has to walk. Don’t wait till the humiliation of the tribunal. Go now Neil @spfl https://t.co/06zXRF0Z06
