2-3 years tops and RANGERS are back in the spl

Will there be an SPL to greet them?
We still have to see whether sponsors & TV networks drop or modify their contracts, which could be financially devestating to the 30 SFL or 12 SPL clubs.
Will Rangers ga,es be competitive? How will fans react, should Rangers crush D3 opponents by large scores weekly? Will Rangers fans travel to support the club? Will they fill Ibrox for home games?
Celtic crowds slipped last year; will that continue?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

This is so, so, so, SO much different than Juve.

Juve got sent down 1 division for cheating. They had great players who stuck with them like Gigi Buffon, Camorenessi, etc.


Rangers went broke and have to money to spend on players. They're playing in a division where most teams have seating for about 1,000 fans. All of their best players on leaving because they don't want to play in the lowest division of Scottish Football.

The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

"The Scottish Football League’s decision to force Rangers to play in the Third Division has raised fears that Scottish football will lose its £16 million sponsorship and broadcasting deal involving Sky and a second company ESPN. ...
One chairman of an SPL club, St Mirren’s Stewart Gilmour, said clubs needed urgent assurances that TV money would continue to flow. “Five clubs in the SPL could be in administration within weeks and we will have to do everything we can to avoid being one of them,” he said."
Will the SPL vote to expel any further bankrupt clubs? WIll the SFL dump them into D3?
