Dunfermline chairman John Yorkston says he is uncomfortable about the prospect of any 'new Rangers' being given a free pass into the top flight.

Rangers are in administration and have been docked 10 points by the SPL.

Administrators Duff and Phelps raised the possibility at the weekend of the current club being liquidated, meaning a new club could be formed to inherit Rangers' assets.

SPL rules allow for the member share of a liquidated club to be transferred to another company, providing 90% of clubs agree on possible sanctions and the league's board then approve the sale.

Yorkston would be one of the persons voting on any side inheriting Rangers' member share, and he says he is unsure if his club would give their approval.

"As we speak today, if they come out of administration I personally feel it's a clean-slate job. If it's liquidation, it's a completely different kettle of fish," he said.

"Liquidation is really different and they may well have to go down to the Third Division.

"We would have to look at it and see what all the facts are."

St Johnstone chairman Steve Brown would not address that specific issue but is a supporter of points deductions for clubs who are forced into insolvency scenarios.

However, other SPL chairmen admitted they would consider the wider impact on Scottish football's finances should a new Rangers emerge.

Meanwhile, it's understood that Gers' administrators have come to an agreement with Dunfermline to meet their £85,000 debt for tickets sold for the SPL clash at East End Park on February 11.
