Under proposals from the SPL that would see a 12-12-18 setup come into force this summer, Rangers would find themselves playing in the bottom division.
If Ally McCoist's side are deprived of promotion, it would render this season virtually meaningless and the Ibrox chief executive insists the Light Blues deserve to move up the league ladder to preserve 'sporting integrity'.
He said: "All things being well, Rangers should win the Third Division title and, that being the case, we should be promoted.
"That should happen regardless of what league structure the powers that be put in place.
"It would be manifestly wrong to deny any team promotion having won the competition they have entered into at the start of the season.
"The principle of promotion and relegation for the clubs which fall into these categories at the end of this season should be enshrined in any new league set up.
"So, if, as widely predicted we end up with a 12-12-18 set up, Rangers should be promoted and this promotion should be to the middle tier.
"There has been no shortage of voices banging on about sporting integrity over the last year but sporting integrity must cut both ways.
"Should that be observed during reconstruction discussions then significant benefits would delivered, particularly to clubs in the middle tier who have yet to reap any financial benefit from us playing in lower divisions."
