PARTICK THISTLE will gauge supporter opinion before deciding whether to agree to a newco Rangers being granted a place in the Irn-Bru First Division next season.
The move comes after an angry backlash from Jags fans about the Ibrox club being parachuted into Scotland's second tier as part of a radical overhaul of our game being driven by the SFA, SPL and SFL.
As SportTimes revealed on Saturday, fans are now considering boycotting matches at Firhill if the club agree to sanction changes that would allow Rangers into the league.
A deal appears to have been struck that would see the introduction of play-offs to the top flight and a new financial distribution model.
The proposals require approval of 75% of the SFL clubs and Thistle will listen to supporters before deciding whether to back the move.
A statement read: "The fast moving events that have unfolded in Scottish football over the last few months have led to an unprecedented level of speculation.
"To reiterate our statement of Friday; there is presently no decision for Partick Thistle, or any other SFL club, to make.
"We as a club are aware though that there has, over the last 24 hours or so, been much discussion on the subject among our supporters.
"We are keen to emphasise that should we be required to be involved in making a decision on the involvement of a newco Rangers club in the SFL that the views of our supporters will be of paramount importance.
"Working closely with the onethistle group, we would make use of every avenue open to us."
