Rangers warning: SPFL chief Neil Doncaster

Doncaster in warning to Gers

SPFL chief Neil Doncaster has warned Rangers they will be ‘warring with themselves’ if they pursue legal action against the league. The Ibrox side had a plea for an independent probe into the vote to end the season blocked, but have vowed not to let the matter rest. Doncaster said: “Ultimately it is a decision for any club what it wishes to do, but any action taken would be against the clubs themselves.” (The Sun)

Scottish football could resume in July with multiple fixtures played at regional ‘hub’ stadiums across the country in front of socially-distanced supporters.

MacDonald backs Levein

Former Hearts boss Alex MacDonald claims Craig Levein can leave Tynecastle with his head held high. The former Scotland manager is set to leave the Gorgie side at the end of the month along with Austin MacPhee but MacDonald believes the ex-Dundee United gaffer has ‘been there and done it’, adding: “He’s got to be able to walk down Gorgie Road with his head in the air – and I’d like to think he’d be able to do that. It must have been a blow to him when things didn’t work out but no one would have worked harder to bring success for the players and supporters.” (Daily Record)
