Likewise.  The moment that's clarified I'll get the wallet out and buy a season ticket for the whole family.

 

Are you seriously saying that your missus won't be home alone on Saturday afternoons next season :(

Aberdeen Football Club has stated that the acceptance or otherwise of a 'NewCo' Rangers into the SPL is only one of a number of issues facing clubs in Scotland over the forthcoming period.

 

Pittodrie Chairman Stewart Milne commented, "As we indicated two weeks ago there are many matters that have to be resolved regarding Rangers. Traditionally we have preferred not to make public our voting intentions, but in light of the level of interest and the fact other clubs have chosen to show their hand, on this occasion I can confirm it is our intention to oppose readmission to the SPL for any Rangers NewCo. If readmission were to be refused, we believe the appropriate course of action would be for Rangers NewCo to apply for membership to the SFA and to submit an application for admission to the SFL.

 

"One of our major objectives has to be to work with everyone concerned to ensure that the commercial challenges that this case has and will continue to cause can be mitigated as far as they possibly can so that sporting integrity can be the overriding factor.

 

"Reorganisation of the game is a priority and is something we have been actively involved in for a long time, but it is not something that should be rushed through just to deal specifically with one club.

 

"As we have indicated there are a number of other areas that we feel need to be addressed openly in the coming period if Scottish football fans are to feel that their views have been properly taken into account."

Most important quote from me.  Well done Milne, hope the other clubs (including those in the SFL) feel the same.

 

The whole newco vote has become a bit of an anti-climax, the important thing now is making sure the newco (if they are still able to put together a team) enter no higher than the lowest league in the SFL.

Agreed.
