Rangers manager Steven Gerrard criticized Thursday's handling of the vote to end the Scottish low-season season and called for an investigation.

The 42 professional Scottish clubs voted in a continual vote at the end of each season at the lower and upper levels of the Premiership if and when it became clear the campaign could not be completed due to COVID-19.

The vote was passed to a majority meaning Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers were declared champions of the League, League One and League Two respectively.

The Premiership, Celtic and Rangers led by 13 points, will not be released until at least April 23, the date of the first UEFA will accept to leave big looga to avoid the possibility that prevented Europe.

The Dundee second team did not vote last week but fully supported the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) resolution that ended earlier this month after a change of heart.

The Rangers, who are in second place in the league, and the lower-ranked Hearts team, will be outdone, I prefer the resolution.

"On the flip side, the SPFL looks messy," Gerrard told Sky Sports. "Watching the first season, graduation and media reading and completely evolved to adapt to the post as looga have, exactly two days in the past.

"There are a lot of allegations and doubts and questions about Hay & # 39; addan, he (SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan) needs to authorize an independent investigation … to prove anyone wrong with the same. and ensure there is justice and transparency across the Scottish commission. "

MacLennan had previously said he was "very satisfied" that the SPFL acted correctly at any stage of the process.

Rangers said last week that they had evidence that showed a & # 39; severe anxiety & # 39; about the voting process in the league.

Mul Bud's heartbroken husband Ann Budge said she was "frustrated and deeply disappointed" after Dundee "voted again" to support the SPFL resolution and said they would continue to fight the Go & # x20AC; & # x2122; 39;

"I believe the whole process was poorly managed and I showed Scottish football in a very poor way," Budge said.

I believe that the SPFL should acknowledge that mistakes were made in dealing with this resolution, removed it and asked the parties to vote again. The result may be the same but at least some of the criticisms would have been addressed.

In the beginning I mentioned that it is important to find a solution to ensure that a team is not penalized for returning to a state where they cannot finish the league. The economic consequences are enormous. ”
