SFL CEO Longmuir Says Restructuring Plans For Next Season Are Falling Apart
Published March 15, 2013
RANGERS FANS THREATEN BOYCOTT: The SCOTSMAN reported Rangers supporters' chiefs "have threatened to boycott away fixtures next season" if the Ibrox outfit’s SFL counterparts vote for a new 12-12-18 set-up. The "sticking point for some of the nation’s smallest clubs is whether to proceed with an 18-team third division or persist with the current Second and Third Divisions comprising 10 teams each." Rangers Supporters Assembly President Andy Kerr claims that the Glasgow club's fanbase "will look to take revenge if the 18-team bottom tier is voted in." Kerr said: "I don’t believe our fans would stand for it, and nor should they. It’s been an adventure this year. But the thought of having to go through all that again, having won the league and not been promoted, would have a very negative affect among our supporters" (SCOTSMAN, 3/14).
