Scottish Premier League clubs will vote on Wednesday, July 4 on whether to admit the 'newco' Rangers to the top flight.

The SPL board set the date at a meeting today, where it was also decided that disciplinary charges will be brought against Rangers following an investigation into the alleged use of dual contracts once the future of the club is clearer, but before the start of next season.
