Rangers relegated to Third Division

Excellent news from Scotland...

Rangers relegated to Third Division
Rangers "newco" was dealt a massive blow on Friday as the club has been relegated to the Third Division of the Scottish Football League after a vote of the organization's member clubs.

The vote took place at Hampden Park and included all 30 SFL clubs.

Rangers had already been denied admission to the Scottish Premier League and was hopeful of dropping into the First Division.

However, the vote saw 25 of the 30 clubs vote in favor of Rangers beginning at the bottom tier of the Scottish Football League.

"The member clubs of the Scottish Football League have today voted to willingly accept the Rangers Football Club as an associate member of the Scottish Football League," SFL chief executive David Longmuir said.

"Furthermore, the Scottish Football League's only acceptable position will be to place Rangers FC into the Third Division of the Irn-Bru Scottish Football League from the start of this season."

I am not sure it is correct to call it a relegation. I think the point is that a completely new Club has been formed, taking oer the name and some assets of the old club, and the SFA hae agreed to accept this new Club as members of the SFA but like any new club they start at the bottom of the league.

(this is quite distinct from a change of ownership of an existing club)

Why is it good news that Scotland’s best soccer team that did so well in Europe in the past, be dissolved? :?

1972 European Cup Winners Cup Final - Rangers vs Moscow Dynamo

Sky Sports would like to apologise to all subscribers for wrongly advertising they could watch Rangers in 3D. They meant Rangers in D3. :lol:
