The Scottish football club whose liquidated assets were snapped up by newco Rangers have been informed it cannot play their trade in the first division of the Scottish Football League nor can it play in the Scottish Premier Leauge.
Helpless Rangers FC will have to settle at competing against the likes of Elgin City and Annan Athletic in the third division and because of this, they are unlikely to feature in Electronic Arts’ FIFA 13 game.
According to a spokesman on behalf of EA SPORTS, no decision has yet been made but it has been understood, that a separate licensing agreement would need to be signed off with the Scottish football club.
“Fifa 13 will be in retail stores beginning September 28 – after the start of the SPL season – so we have the flexibility to align with the authentic league structure.
“As far as Glasgow Rangers are concerned, we have not made a decision at this time on whether we will pursue a separate licensing agreement to include them in Fifa 13.”
The club to replace Rangers FC in the Scottish Premier Leauge has been confirmed as Dundee, who finished as runners-up in the Irn-Bru First Division last season.
