Former league champions Rangers yesterday set out their vision for a reform of Scottish club soccer after threatening last week to try to find a European league to play in.

Rangers, now in the fourth tier because of financial problems, proposed delaying any changes to the Scottish structure until 2014/'15.

The Glasgow club also recommended splitting the game into three leagues of 14 clubs rather than the proposed 12-12-18 format that could take effect from next season. Chief executive Charles Green restated Rangers' ambition to be part of any future cross-border European league. "I am fully aware of the unique challenges a club the size of Rangers face in Scotland. That is why we must explore all options for the long-term, including playing out-with Scotland," he said.
