SFL clubs 'vote for merger'

12 June 2013 12:47

Scottish Football League clubs voted in favour of a merger with the Scottish Premier League at Hampden Park, Press Association Sport understands.

A minimum of 22 of the 29 SFL clubs eligible to vote - Rangers did not get a vote as they are associate members having joined last summer - were needed to push reconstruction proposals through.

Amid a background of acrimony surrounding the vote and with the ever-present threat of a breakaway by the first division clubs, 23 clubs voted yes with six against.
