In a further show of strength and support for Rangers calls for an independent investigation into the SPFL hierarchy, the (second) most unlikely club has thrown their weight behind them after Aberdeen announced they would be voting in favour.

The Dons are a truly independent club in the whole saga and from the first resolution vote have been aware that there are questions that need to be answered.
The SPFL EGM is sure to be a far from quiet affair with Neil Doncaster likely to face significantly tougher questioning that the ones that he has faced so far from the carefully selected interviews he has done, they are also likely to be more probing than the ones Murdoch MacLennan asked himself.
Rangers may not secure enough votes – 75% is required – to approve the resolution and an independent investigation but anything over 50% would be a significant vote of no confidence in the current executive.
Fans of the Ibrox side responded to Aberdeen’s statement and remarkable show of solidarity agreeing on one thing, if they are supporting Rangers, then there has to be something wrong with Scottish football.

It’s good to see club hatred being put aside for once to fix everything that’s wrong with the football in Scotland. Well played Aberdeen.

One thing that is clear, regardless of the outcome today, it will be far from the end of the sorry saga as Rangers – amongst other clubs – prepare to take the SPFL to court should they force through their plans as agreed at the original and highly contentious first vote.
