Glasgow Rangers: Fans rage as Hearts and ‘Gers reconstruction plans fail but SPFL offer alternative

Glasgow Rangers: Fans rage as Hearts and ‘Gers reconstruction plans fail but SPFL offer alternative - Rangers

Glasgow Rangers have reportedly failed to gain enough support for their reconstruction plans. 

BBC Scotland has revealed that the plans put forward by Rangers and Hearts for a new structure with Old Firm B teams in the bottom league won’t be happening anytime soon.

The ‘Gers were always going to be unhappy when the SPFL announced that the top four divisions would be cancelled as a result of the ongoing pandemic. As a consequence, the club’s bitter rivals Celtic were crowned Scottish Premiership champions, and Hearts were subsequently relegated to the Championship.

After the Jam Tarts were demoted, owner Ann Budge suggested the current format should be changed to include three leagues consisting of 14 teams each.

Rangers had added that they should be allowed to field B teams along with Celtic in the lowest tier, but the SPFL have decided an expanded top flight is the only option available.

This is just the latest example of a power struggle between the ‘Gers and the governing body. Indeed, the 54-times Scottish champions previously accused the SPFL of corruption and called for an independent investigation. However, CEO Neil Doncaster has rebuffed all claims at the time of writing.
