That was the claim from Light Blues legend Derek Johnstone today in the wake of the top flight clubs' bizarre climbdown at Hampden.
Our leading clubs delayed voting on proposed changes to their financial fair play rules at a meeting at the National Stadium yesterday. They claim they need more "clarity" and "information" and will reconvene to discuss the contentious issue next Monday.
But it has emerged they may not make a decision then either.
And SportTimes columnist Johnstone believes threats by Gers supporters not to attend away matches have got club owners running scared. He said: "The SPL clubs have known for weeks they were going to have to vote on the financial fair play regulations yesterday. They knew what they were going to Hampden to do. Now, apparently, they say they need more clarity. Clarity of what? They knew exactly what they were voting for.
"They have known about what is involved all along. This is a sham. It is so frustrating for Rangers fans wanting the situation at the Ibrox club sorted out."
DJ added: "Rangers fans have voted pretty much en masse to take sanctions against the clubs who have taken this action against their club. They are asking: 'Why should we pay money to a club who voted to punish our club?'
"It is down to each individual Rangers fan what they decide to do with their hard-earned cash. But clubs are going to be asking just now if they want to cut off their noses to spite their faces.
"Remember, this is the same group of men who opted to bring in Setanta to televise Scottish football because they were offering more money than Sky.
"I have to ask, what will Sky Sports think if there are no Old Firm games to broadcast? That is what they expect to have to show when they sign a deal. There is no way they will agree to the same terms."
Johnstone believes the surprise decision to delay the vote may help Rangers if administrators Paul Clark and David Whitehouse are able to name a preferred bidder this week.
He said: "If that happens, Ally McCoist will at least have somebody who can go to these meetings and fight for the club, argue their case, make a decision on their behalf. At the moment it is being left to Andrew Dickson, Sandy Jardine and the administrators to represent the club."
