St Mirren chairman Stewart Gilmour has hit out at Rangers for taking their fight against a transfer ban to court.

Lord Glennie on Tuesday ruled a 12-month transfer embargo imposed on Rangers was unlawful as the punishment was not contained in the Scottish Football Association rules.

Gilmour, speaking at Hampden after a Scottish Premier League meeting on financial fair play issues, said: "The law is an ass. I think that sums it up.

"What's a court getting involved in football for? The decision had been made. Are we going to take every single sending-off to court? Is that what we are going to end up with?

"Sport should stay within sport."
