The Gers manager Ally McCoist insists the same rules should apply to all Scottish clubs who suffer an insolvency event.
The Jambos have been banned from registering players aged 21 and over between now and February but have been spared a fine for calling in the administrators, as were Dunfermline.
Rangers were hit with both a fine and a one-year transfer embargo when they entered administration in February 2012 over then owner Craig Whyte's failure to pay tax, before eventually being consigned to liquidation.
McCoist said: "There should be one rule for everybody. I don't think there is any doubt about that."
Rangers chief executive Craig Mather demanded answers from the SFA over the differing sanctions on Thursday night and McCoist added: "I would echo Craig's statement, which is effectively looking for clarification on the issue.
"I will be honest with you, I don't really know the full situation.
"I know we were fined £50,000 and I think that was for going into administration.
"If that's the case, you would find it strange that it hasn't happened to other clubs.
"I don't want that - far from it. I would rather we had never been fined £50,000, the same as the rest of the clubs.
"I would wait to hear what the governing body has to say about it because I would have to say, from our point of view, and the supporters' point of view, it needs to be clarified."
According to McCoist, the SFA has yet to make contact to offer an explanation.
He said: "We haven't had any clarification. Maybe they will be sending us a cheque for £50,000.
"I think the very least we deserve is an explanation for it and then we will take it from there."
Meanwhile, McCoist is continuing to run the rule over Mamady Sidibe and Hameur Bouazza, who both joined Rangers on trial earlier this week.
He said: "They have been fine. The lads have trained all week. I'll have a chat with them and see where we are.
"There is no immediate rush because they can't play anyway, even if we were to offer them anything.
"I'll just get a feel for them and see how much they are enjoying it.
"They have been great and we have enjoyed having them and they will maybe stay on. We will see what they want to do as well."
McCoist also remains hopeful of completing a deal for Bosnian defender Boris Pandza despite protracted talks.
He said: "I know Craig is still in discussions with Boris' agent.
"I spoke to Boris maybe 10 days ago and he registered a keenness to come and I registered a keenness to sign the player.
"Negotiations are going along quite well, without wanting to tempt fate.
"There is nothing sinister in the delay at all, it's maybe just taking a little bit longer than everybody would hope.
"I would be very hopeful of getting something done very soon."
Rangers take on Forfar in the first round of the Scottish Communities League Cup tomorrow with a depleted squad as a result of all their new signings being ineligible for the tie.
The club's transfer embargo means new recruits cannot be registered until September 1 and the cup competition's rules mean they are unable to feature as trialists.
McCoist said: "We've got a really tricky one because we can't play any of our signings at all.
"It's far from ideal. It's tough going up there at the best of times but we will be back down to the bare bones again so it will be extremely difficult."
