Rangers to snub SPL hearing

Rangers have refused to co-operate with the Scottish Premier League inquiry into alleged undisclosed payments to players by a previous Ibrox regime.

Chief executive Charles Green has announced the club would not attend the opening hearings of the SPL-appointed independent commission into the matter, due to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Green said in a statement: "The club cannot continue to participate in an SPL process that we believe is fundamentally misconceived."
