The person behind the petition also said they will aim to remove Celtic chief Peter Lawwell if they hit 20,000 signatures. However, he is no longer on the SPFL board. Rangers chief Stewart Robertson is.

It was set up following the back-and-forth between Rangers and the SPFL.

The Ibrox club had released a statement on Friday morning regarding their member’s resolution and how they were not being helped by the governing body.

It prompted the SPFL to hit back with a statement, rejecting Rangers’ claims.

Then, following the Friday vote and the confusion which surrounded it with the resolution yet to be passed with Dundee still to vote, Rangers released another statement saying they had evidence of incompetence from the SPFL, while calling for the suspension of Doncaster.

That prompted another SPFL statement, this time from their chairman Murdoch MacLennan calling on Rangers to present their evidence or withdraw their claims.

According to reports, the club won’t release their evidence until an independent investigation is underway.

The petition, which says of Doncaster ‘corrupt man who is a shambles and a disgrace to Scotland’, shows the strength of feeling amongst some football fans.
