Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster insists the independent commission appointed to probe historic payments made to Rangers players must be allowed to complete its work.
The three-man panel, chaired by Lord Nimmo Smith, was set to begin hearing evidence on Tuesday after the SPL began an investigation into alleged undisclosed payments to Rangers players from 2000 to 2011.
The probe was launched before the original Rangers company was consigned to liquidation and the newco club have refused to recognise or co-operate with the investigation. At the weekend, Rangers called for the investigation to be halted and warned that the ultimate sanction of title-stripping could see fans refuse to attend away games in future.
