Charles Green says he will take his newco Rangers into the Scottish Football League after they were dumped from the Scottish Premier League last night.

Charles Green says he will take his newco Rangers into the Scottish Football League after they were dumped from the Scottish Premier League last night.

10 SPL clubs voted against the reformed Glasgow club playing in Scotland’s top flight after they fell into liquidation following financial misdemeanours over the years.

With an almost unanimous ruling against Rangers, the Ibrox outfit will now seek an application for the SFL despite Green admitting the clubs dissatisfaction at being denied the chance to play in the SPL when things appeared to change on the weekend.

“We are deeply disappointed that our application to rejoin the SPL has been rejected,” said Green who is prepared to go as far down as the Third Division with the club.

“This time last week all of us at Rangers were resigned to the fact we’d not be admitted.

“At the weekend we were approached by representatives from the SPL suggesting our application still stood a chance of success and we should discuss this further with clubs. This we did in good faith but with the knowledge of the hurdles that lay ahead of us.

“We had asked the SPL whether it would be more appropriate for us to withdraw our application but were advised against this.

“We made a presentation to the SPL clubs this morning, detailing our proposals.

“Sadly this was rejected and we regret that our club and our supporters were given false hope by this initiative.”

He added: “If our application were to be accepted, Rangers will play in whichever division the SFL sees fit.”

Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-yueng admits he would love to get a move to the Spanish La Liga.

The 23-year old South Korean international has been linked with a number of clubs in recent times with German pair Bayer Leverkusen and Werder Bremen and Russians Rubin Kazan at the forefront of those showing interest.

But Ki says he would prefer a shift to Spain’s top flight, however, he would only make the move if he was guaranteed first team football.

“Ever since I was a kid I have dreamed of playing in the Spanish league,” he told Record Sport.

“I would only move from Celtic if I am guaranteed playing time but if and when the offer comes I hope it is from Spain.

“All footballers want to play at the highest level and my ambition is to play in La Liga.

“We won the SPL this year and that fulfilled my hopes in Scotland.

“Now I have to wait to see if I am transferred.”

Aberdeen new boy Niall McGinna feels his new club can challenge his former club for next season’s Scottish Premier League title.

Aberdeen new boy Niall McGinna feels his new club can challenge his former club for next season’s Scottish Premier League title.

The 24-year old Northern Ireland international yesterday sealed a move from Celtic to Aberdeen and is of the belief that the Dons are capable of providing a contest for the Hoops for top spot in the wake of Rangers falling out of the top flight.

“With the current state Rangers are in there is no reason why Aberdeen cannot challenge Celtic next season,” McGinn said.

“With the squad and manager we’ve got we should definitely be pushing for Europe.

“There is no reason why we can’t do well and bring success back to this club.

“Aberdeen is a big club with a lot of history and it’s good to be working under an experienced manager like Craig Brown.”

Ian Black could become the first player signed by Rangers’ newco but only if the club plays in Scotland’s First Division next season.

The 27-year old midfielder departed Heart of Midlothian at the end of last season after his contract expired and is now a free agent on the hunt for a new club.

Black has been linked with ‘Gers during the off-season and has since reportedly agreed personal terms with the Glasgow club, however, he will not officially sign if Charles Green’s newco are put down to the Third Division.

Fraser Forster has finally completed his permanent switch from Newcastle United to Celtic.

The 24-year old goalkeeper has spent the past two seasons on loan with the Scottish champions and has now penned a four-year deal to move to Glasgow on a permanent basis.

Forster, who has made over 70 appearances for the Hoops, was set to battle with the likes of Tim Krul, Rob Eliot and Steve Harper for the number one shirt with the Magpies so has decided to move on to become a concrete fixture at Parkhead.

“This is a massive club and I feel like this is a step forward in my career,” he told the club’s official website.

“I want to win things as a team and improve as an individual and I think I will be able to do that at Celtic.

“It also gives me a great opportunity to play in the Champions League if we get through the qualifiers. I really enjoyed my time in Europe last season so I will be looking forward to it if it happens again.

“I enjoyed last season as a whole and we have a great young squad here. The players and the coaches make it an enjoyable place to be and I like being a part of this team.”

Chinese Super League club Guizhou Renhe has revealed that they held talks with Everton star Tim Cahill but could not come to an agreement.

The 32-year old Australian was spotted in the stands as Renhe took on Guangdong Sunray Cave in a cup tie on the weekend but head coach Gao Hongbo has made it clear that he attended as a guest after a potential deal to sign for the Guiyan club fell through.

“The club actually had negotiations with Tim Cahill, but failed to reach an agreement,” Gao told Soccerway.

“There were some technical problems, so Mr Cahill visits Guizhou this time. We really hope he could be interested in Guiyang and our club.”

Cahill’s future at Goodison Park has been questioned recently and will be even more so after the club signed Steven Naismith from Rangers who plays a similar role to the Aussie.
