Scottish Premier LeagueEdit

Rangers' participation in the SPL was dependant upon the successful transfer of their membership share of the League to the new company that had bought the club, which would be decided by a vote of the SPL clubs.[2] Eight clubs publicly declared that they would oppose the membership transfer, which would mean that they could not play in the SPL.[3][4] The vote took place on 4 July 2012, and Rangers were refused re-entry to the SPL by a 10-1 majority.[5] Dundee, who had finished second in the 2011–12 Scottish First Division, were invited to replace Rangers.[5][6]
