The SPFL has commissioned an inquiry into Dundee’s vote on a resolution to end the lower league and said “there is no evidence of inappropriate behavior”.
Rangers, Hearts, and Aberdeen all requested an independent investigation into the whole process.
Dundee has submitted no votes which the league said were never accepted, before turning into yes.
Substitution was proven to be decisive and the lower league was completed early.
“The examination of Deloitte’s telephone records, cellular communications (including text) and e-mail data does not identify evidence of inappropriate behavior by SPFL personnel regarding the Dundee FC vote,” SPFL’s independent non-executive director Karyn McCluskey wrote in a letter to the club.
“I hope Scottish football will now focus on the important issues facing our game, otherwise many clubs might not survive this period.”
Rangers is the first club to request an independent investigation after claiming they had evidence from “whistleblowers” about the lack of “fair play” as well as “oppression and coercion” from the club to vote in favor of the proposal.
The Ibrox club is calling for the suspension of SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster and legal adviser Rod Mackenzie.
Carefully echo the call for investigation with the owner Ann Budge said The league tried to “overly influence” the outcome of the plan, and Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack said an investigation was needed to restore fan confidence in the process.
The investigation commissioned by the SPFL saw “factual chronology relating to the return of Dundee FC”.
The resolution was supported by more than 80% of 42 senior Scottish clubs and gave the SPFL board the authority to terminate the Premiership prematurely.
A league letter to the club adding questions by Deloitte was ordered “to ensure honesty and independence during this process”.
