Director of potential investment group provides welcome boost for Rangers fans

Rangers FC

The Director of Ranger First has explained the group's intentions in relation to the club.

Fan ownership group Rangers First have explained to the Daily Mail why they are looking to invest in the Scottish club.

The Mail has reported that the group have raised around £100,000, which should see them accumulate around 10% of shares in Rangers based on the current market value.

The aim; to give fans fairer representation on the club’s board.

“We don’t want to own Ibrox. What we seek is representation for supporters on the board,” said the group’s director Ricki Neill.

The news could come as welcome relief to some supporters who may fear the intentions of businessman Mike Ashley, who continues to put cash into the club.

Ashley recently requested Ibrox as security for a £10 million loan according to the BBC and this seems like a good and effective way for Rangers First to ensure fans are still heard regardless of who owns the other 90% of shares now or in the future.

Neill has detailed that all matters are run by the group’s members who vote on the best course of action.
