Glasgow Rangers will begin next season in the fourth tier, Scotland's lowest professional league, after the move was approved by the country's soccer authorities on Friday.

The Scottish Football League announced that agreement had been reached following weeks of discussions to allow a reformed Rangers conditional membership in the Scottish Football Association.

Rangers, Scottish champion a record 54 times, were put in bankruptcy protection because of tax debts exceeding $30 million. The team is now set to visit grounds with seats for just a few hundred fans next season.

Americans Carlos Bocanegra, Maurice Edu and Alejandro Bedoya are on Rangers but may leave.
