Glasgow– Rangers were dramatically kicked out of next season's Scottish Premier League after rival clubs voted overwhelmingly to exclude the ailing Glasgow giants, it was confirmed Wednesday.

The soon-to-be-liquidated Ibrox club had applied to rejoin the league after reforming as a new company but their request was turned down following a vote of the other clubs which make up the Scottish top-flight.

It caps a humiliating fall from grace for the most successful club in Scottish football, who were plunged into crisis earlier this year after entering administration following a tax dispute. – AFP
