Club chairman Stewart Gilmour has contacted us on his way home from Hampden and asked us to publish the following statement on behalf of the club;
As you will now be aware St.Mirren FC today voted against the application by the Rangers NewCo to be admitted to the SPL. This vote was part of an overwhelming rejection of the application by the SPL member clubs.
It will now be left for the SFA and SFL collectively to decide where the Rangers NewCo will play it's football next season.
Those organisations will make their decision in due course without any pressure from the SPL or it's member clubs and we will fully respect whatever decision they make.
We now hope that the St.Mirren support will get fully behind the club and team as we prepare for the new season and start once again to focus on football matters.
Unfortunately due to the clubs media officer being in hospital today we are unable to post a detailed update to the official site, so my thanks to Black & White army for publishing this update.
