Dundee United have announced that they would not support the formation of an SPL 2 or any other route for Rangers newco to join the SPL.
The Terrors were among those to reject the idea of the newco at Ibrox entering the top tier of Scottish football.
The Gers have since been knocked down into Division 3, following a Scottish Football League vote.
It is still being suggested that there may be a route back up the ladder for the financially-crippled Old Firm outfit, but Dundee United have made it clear that they would be strongly against such action.
A statement released on the club's official website on Saturday read: "Following yesterday's democratic vote by the SFL clubs in favour of admitting The Rangers Football Club as an associate member of the SFL, but with the Third Division being the only acceptable position, Dundee United will now focus on our upcoming campaign while working together with the other SPL clubs to ensure the stability of the SPL and Scottish football in what will be an uncertain and extremely challenging financial environment.
"For the avoidance of doubt, following yesterday's vote, the club would not support any counter proposals for the formation of SPL 2 or regarding any other route for The Rangers Football Club to join the SPL.
"Now is the time for everyone to be united as one and we ask our supporters to stand alongside us as we face the challenges ahead."
