ACCORDING to the BBC, SFL Chief Executive David Longmuir has confirmed that following Dundee’s SPL invitation, Airdrie United and Stranraer will be promoted.

Longmuir told BBC Scotland: “The play-offs are there to give us a path for promotion.

“Therefore, this season’s defeated finalists will automatically gain promotion once the appropriate paperwork between Dundee and the SPL is complete.

“I’d expect that to happen in the next few days.”

Airdrie United will take over Dundee’s fixtures meaning that Sons first league game of the season will be at the Excelsior Stadium on August 11th.

Once Scottish FA membership has been negotiated, Rangers will take over Dundee’s fixture in the Ramsdens Cup away at Brechin City on 28 July.
