Chris Sutton has taken aim at Rangers by saying their dossier, which was meant to expose evidence, has truly ‘shaken Scottish football to the core’.

He tweeted: “Rangers dossier as expected has shaken Scottish football to the core.

“SPFL spokesman “initial investigation into Rangers dossier fail to identify a single shred of evidence to support Rangers vociferous claims of corruption, bullying and coercion by SPFL staff”

The SPFL were quick to hit back saying that the dossier fails to provide even a shred of evidence by Rangers, that claim that there was bullying taking place during the vote.

Rangers insist: “Scottish Football’s credibility has been badly damaged by recent events and the resolution proposed by the SPFL Board and approved by members is seriously compromised…

“Rangers believes that the only credible way to resolve this situation is for an Independent Investigation to be held and led by an experienced QC with at least 10 years standing and experience carrying out investigations/enquiries.”

Meanwhile, an SPFL spokesman said: “It is now a month since Rangers accused the SPFL of bullying and corruption relating to the Dundee FC return.

“At last, Rangers have issued their ‘dossier’ and we will now take time to review it, before responding to all 42 clubs.

“Since Rangers publicly demanded the suspension of the SPFL’s chief executive and legal counsel, everyone in Scottish football has waited patiently for them to present their case.

“However, an initial examination of their ‘dossier’ has failed to identify a single shred of evidence to support Rangers’ vociferous claims of corruption, bullying and coercion by SPFL staff.

“If Rangers have any good reason for Neil Doncaster and Rod McKenzie to be suspended, we have yet to see it.”
