Motherwell had earlier announced yesterday that they will base their decision on the wishes of members of the Well Society, effectively allowing fans to determine how the club will vote.
It's also understood that St Johnstone will follow the lead of Hearts and United when the SPL clubs meet on July 4, while Celtic, Aberdeen and Hibernian are all also expected to vote no, which leaves Gers unlikely to receive enough backing to remain in the SPL, since they require an 8-4 majority.
This would appear to add growing weight to the notion that the clubs believe a deal can yet be struck with the Scottish Football League for Rangers to be accommodated in the First Division, so limiting the cost to top-flight clubs.
Hearts' Vladimir Romanov declared his stance in a statement when he said that, "[the Ibrox side has] lived beyond law and all morals, and should now be declared beyond the pale".
Romanov added: "We can only express our deepest condolences to its supporters, who have been lied to for so many years.
"Victories were achieved not by sporting merits, but through slander, conspiracies among players and their poaching via third parties, unfair pressuring of referees, who in themselves are as valuable to the fabric of football as the football stars themselves. All of this brought hollow victories and destroyed football."
Dundee United released a statement after a meeting with fans' groups which read: "The Board of Directors of Dundee United are unequivocal in the belief that a form of sporting punishment must form part of the reasoning behind any decision made and, therefore, cannot vote the newco into the SPL.
"General sporting integrity and, more importantly, the integrity of Scottish football must also play a significant part in the decision-making process. It is our belief that any form of sporting punishment must be unambiguous in the message it displays."
Motherwell also made a statement, following a board meeting yesterday at which the directors decided to allow fans to determine how the club will vote on July 4. With the Fir Park side moving towards full supporter ownership, they felt it was in keeping with their plans to allow fans this responsibility.
Inverness Caledonian Thistle will also take into account the views of their fans before deciding how to vote. "It is fair to say those who say that Rangers have been punished sufficiently are an extremely small minority of all the representations received," said chairman Kenny Cameron.
While Kilmarnock have announced that they have sold more season tickets than at this stage last season, 1000 more than last season's total would be required to cover the costs of Rangers not being in the top flight.
"This is good news and while the majority of renewal applications are still to be received, it is encouraging that, despite the level of uncertainty currently surrounding the SPL, so many of our supporters have already signed up for next season," said Michael Johnston, the Rugby Park club's chairman.
