SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster today insisted he has received no reports of bullying - despite the dossier Rangers sent out this week alleging two Championship clubs had told him they were threatened by a board member.

The document the Ibrox club forwarded to the other 41 SPFL clubs ahead of an extraordinary general meeting on Tuesday claimed that Dundee and Inverness Caledonian Thistle had reported threats being made to Doncaster.

Rangers claimed the chief executive had failed to act when told SPFL board member Ross McArthur of Dunfermline and SFA vice-president Mike Mulraney of Alloa had warned Dundee and Inverness they could receive less money if they voted against the resolution on the end of the season.

Speaking on Sportsound on BBC Radio Scotland this afternoon, Doncaster admitted that "a number of people expressed concern about language that was used" in "robust exchanges".

However, the former Norwich City chief executive stated denied that any "bullying or coercion" - which Rangers last month insisted had happened in the build-up to the vote - had taken place.

And he urged any SPFL club official who felt they had experienced bullying to make a formal complaint and stressed it would be dealt with in the proper manner by the governing body.

"No club has reported bullying to me and as far as I'm aware to Murdoch MacLennan (SPFL chairman) either," he said.

"Clearly there are robust exchanges between clubs. We were aware, particularly in the Championship, that those robust discussions were ongoing, but noone reported any bullying to me.

"A number of people expressed concern about language that was used. There was a suggestion, I believe, that if the resolution didn't go through then there might be an attempt to change the distribution mechanism in the Championship and perhaps make it an equal share.

"That is the sort of discussions that you would expect to go on."

Doncaster added: "Anyone who witnessed the league reconstruction debate that happened in the past - I saw myself a huge, very difficult exchange that took place between Stewart Gilmour of St Mirren and Stewart Milne of Aberdeen.

"That is what happens when you have got rough, tough business people involved in the game. They who are no shrinking violets. You expect there to be robust conversations. That is wholly different from someone making a formal complaint or an allegation of bullying. That hasn't happened.

"If any club has evidence that it was bullied and wishes to make a formal complaint then they should do so. It will be dealt with in the proper way. That just hasn't happened.

"If people feel the line has been crossed (between robust conversation and coercion) they should make a formal complaint and that hasn't happened. 

"I would encourage anyone who feels they have been bullied by anyone to come forward and report it. It will be investigated and dealt with in the proper way. The board have always made that entirely clear. 

"I had a number of clubs who were concerned at the way they were being treated by other clubs. You expect that. That's the nature of these things. But no one made any formal complaint at any stage to be taken forward. There was no follow-up requested. As far as I am aware, no formal complaint has been made to any member of the board of the SPFL.

"People were concerned about the language that was used and that was both ways, not coming from one side to the other. There were concerns about the people on both sides of the argument. But no one has asked for any action to be taken. If they do so, it will be dealt with in the proper way."
