The board of the Scottish Professional Football League is to meet on Friday to discuss the verdict of Rangers' latest tax case.

Sky sources understand no decision will be taken at the conference call and it is unlikely any statement will be made until a later date.

Earlier this week HMRC won its second appeal over the the so-called 'big tax case' which involved the use of Employee Benefit Trusts to players and employees of the club for almost a decade.

At the Court of Session on Wednesday, judges ruled that payments to players of oldco Rangers through the controversial EBT scheme should have been taxed.

Now supporters of clubs throughout Scotland are calling for the governing body to strip the oldco, which was consigned to liquidation in the summer of 2012, of any titles and trophies won during the period 2001-2009 when the scheme was in place.
