Glasgow Rangers may not be involved directly, but they will likely be keeping an eye on how the situation involving Hearts and Partick Thistle evolves.
On Monday, it was confirmed that there will be no reconstruction of the Scottish football league pyramid despite Ann Budge’s attempt to see a big change implemented – she was clearly looking for her club, the Jam Tarts, to avoid relegation to the second tier. However, only 16 sides agree that a mix-up was needed.
They are not the only side who have been hard done by, though – Thistle will also be dropping down a tier following the premature end to the campaign. Now, both clubs have confirmed that they will be taking legal action against the SPFL.
Do you think Hearts and Partick Thistle will win against the SPFL in a court of law?
Now, it has been revealed that the two clubs are looking for a combined compensation package of £10m, with £8m going to Hearts and £2m to Thistle. This, as you can imagine, has attracted the attention of the Gers supporters, who saw their club do battle with the SPFL recently too.
Many have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
£10m alone in compensation for two clubs. Opens the door for further compensation claims if Doncaster loses. Basically bankrupts the entire league setup.

Caused by mismanagement, incompetence and corruption. Liewell is a greedy man. All clubs suffer for his greed.

To avoid paying that money make the league null and void as the spfl couldn’t afford it .

That could bankrupt the SPFL.
