Rangers chief executive Charles Green boycotts SPL commission


Rangers have refused to co-operate with the Scottish Premier League inquiry into alleged undisclosed payments to players by a previous Ibrox regime.

Charles Green, the club's chief executive, said Rangers would not attend the opening hearings of the SPL-appointed independent commission into the matter, due to take place today and tomorrow.

Green questioned the independence of the three-man panel and threatened legal action if SPL titles are stripped from Rangers. "The club cannot continue to participate in a process that we believe is fundamentally misconceived," he said.
