Green's hopes of a Premier League place are dashed
Charles Green’s hopes of launching his newco Rangers in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League were dashed yesterday when the number of confirmed objectors among the clubs doubled to six.
Inverness, Aberdeen and St Johnstone announced in quick succession they would vote against Green’s application when the 12 clubs meet on July 4th.
Dundee United, Hearts and Hibernian had previously made public their opposition, leaving Green with no chance of securing the 8-4 majority needed.
Green must now see whether he can secure a deal to demote Rangers to the Irn-Bru First Division or whether he will be forced to apply to gain entry to the Third.
