The SPL are making noises that they will not just roll over if a 'newco' Rangers apply for membership
There is still an ongoing investigation on the alleged use of 'double contracts' at Ibrox but Doncaster says no verdict is expected soon. He added: "It will take some time and, ultimately, it's being done by our lawyers. How long will it take? How long has the HMRC case taken? These things take as long as they take."
Green told representatives of Rangers fans' groups on Thursday night that investors have already committed £20million to the consortium. However, after being reassured by Craig Whyte that he had money behind him, supporters are concerned by the former Sheffield United chief executive's unwillingness to name others involved in the takeover. Rangers Supporters Trust chairman Mark Dingwall said: "We need clarity on who potentially are going to be owners of our football club and he was not able to give us names. He said the people involved want confidentiality at the moment. He told us that five or six have committed financially to the group and 20-odd are considering doing so but no names. He said the administrators have seen proof they have a bank account with £20million deposited. We will have to wait and see how it develops but the fact he could not be transparent about the identity of his group remains concerning."
