The ‘Gers had been pushing for a potential restart to the campaign and demanded an internal investigation into the SPFL over their handling of the league restart vote.

These ‘Gers fans took to Twitter to hammer the proposals to start next season in August, with one angry Ibrox supporter labelling it “corruption personified”:
