Only 13 clubs voted in favour of Rangers’ resolution to hold an independent investigation into the actions of the SPFL, according to the Daily Record.
29 other teams either voted against or abstained, meaning the Gers fell well short of the 75% threshold required to force through a new inquiry.
The likes of Hearts, Stranraer, Partick Thistle and even Aberdeen had confirmed their support for the Gers but this vote all but ends their hopes of any further investigation into the SPFL’s behaviour.
Where this leaves the Scottish game is anyone’s guess. The vote effectively shows 31% of the clubs don’t have full confidence in the governing body running football in the country.
The rancour between Rangers and some of the members of the SPFL’s board is unlikely to be resolved any time soon, and this will probably lead to more battles and infighting down the line. At a time where football should be coming together in Scotland, it appears to be falling apart.
