MORTON today became the third SFL club to confirm they will vote against any move to parachute Rangers into the Irn-Bru First Division.
Falkirk and Raith Rovers have already publicly stated their opposition to the plan which has been drafted by the powerbrokers at the SFA, SPL and SFL as a way out of the crisis that has engulfed the game after the collapse of the stricken Ibrox side.
SFL clubs are set to meet next Tuesday to discuss the matter further, but no official vote will take place then.
However, with any move to drop newco Rangers into the First Division requiring a 75 per cent majority of the 30 SFL clubs entitled to vote, it appears there could be major problems ahead.
Morton chairman Douglas Rae believes that Rangers MUST join at Third Division level if any application to the SFL is made.
The Cappielow chief said today: "I want to be clear that I do not think Rangers should go into the First Division.
"I understand the feelings of a lot of people who have written in to me about this issue, and I feel similarly.
"If it comes down to a vote then I will be voting for Rangers to go to the Third Division."
Morton have been inundated with letters and emails from fans expressing concern at any move which would see the Rangers 'newco' given entry straight into the First Division.
The Ton fans' trust has set up an online poll to gauge opinion and has arranged a meeting tomorrow night to discuss the situation.
Supporters of other First Division clubs, such as Partick Thistle, have also been vocal in their disapproval of Rangers playing in their division next term.
Rae added: "There is a strength of feeling against Rangers going straight to the First Division and it would be my intention to vote in the same way as the majority of people who have expressed a view."
The Ton owner said he also hoped the Ibrox crisis and current turmoil within the game could act as a turning point for Scottish football.
He said: "This is an opportunity to end things like the 11-1 voting structure in the SPL.
"We have to see more democratic decision-making and a fairer distribution of monies available around the game, so that more teams can challenge for honours. We must take this opportunity to get important things right."
Meanwhile, Besiktas are not interest ín taking Allan McGregor to Turkey. Some parts of the media had reported the Ibrox No.1 is a target for the ambitious Istanbul club and that they have held talks with the keeper's agent.
