Rangers are preparing for a season in the Second Division

There has been increased speculation about a new league set-up for next season after clubs failed to agree a restructure plan put forward by the Scottish Football League.

First Division teams are keen to stage a break away which would see 10 clubs in the 'SPL2' and reports suggested that Rangers could be invited to join.

But interim club chief executive Craig Mather insists there has been no such contact and is not interested in fast-tracking the team through the divisions.

He told the club's website: "Ally (McCoist) and I have always been on the same page and the club's stance is simple. We're now in June and we have had no contact whatsoever from the SPL regarding anything.

"We want to work our way up the leagues creating building blocks so that when we get back to the top of Scottish football, we have the right team and ethos.

"As far as we are concerned, we will be playing in SFL2 or whatever that league will be called next season."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
