Dunfermline chairman John Yorkston believes his club should be selected to replace Rangers in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League ahead of the new season.
Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster confirmed on Wednesday that top-flight clubs will decide who replaces Rangers with a decision on the identity of 'Club 12' expected to come after Scottish Football League clubs decide where to admit newco Rangers.
That meeting takes place next Thursday but Yorkston feels the Pars, who finished bottom of the SPL last season, should remain in the top flight rather than the 12th spot be taken by Dundee - who finished second in the Irn-Bru First Division.
"We need to know where we are; which teams we're playing and we need to get on with it," he told BBC Sport.
"Dundee have a case and we have a case; it's just a case of waiting to see how it goes.
"There's no criteria for the second team going up. There have been cases where a team hasn't been relegated - when Falkirk didn't have a complied stadium - so there are a lot of reasons in our favour.
"It's impossible for ourselves and it's the same for Dundee; even Rangers don't know which league they're going to be in, so their plans must be affected too.
"There are indications that a decision has been made. Dundee have been told not to vote at the SFL meeting."
Either way Yorkston wants the situation revolved as soon as possible so that all those clubs unsure of their position can prepare for the upcoming season.
"Basically, we just want to know which division we're going to be in next year. That way the manager can plan what he's going to do next year," he said.
