Easdale hits back at critics

Charles Green: Former Rangers chief executive and consultant

Green fronted a consortium in June 2012 which purchased Ibrox Park and the training complex of Rangers after the club was liquidated by HMRC.

But Green resigned from his chief executive role shortly after his comments about a fellow board member were criticised by anti-racism groups, and following a brief return in a consultancy role, he agreed to sell his shares to Easdale.

The Scottish League One club is preparing for an AGM on 19 December and some supporters trying to overthrow the current board have claimed Green still has influence at the club.

Easdale said: "In no shape or form is Charles Green pulling any strings. Charles has nothing to do with the club.

"If you look at the statement when he left and was handing the shares over to me, he said he had no influential powers at the club and that's the way it is today."

Another complaint of Rangers fans ahead of the AGM has been a lack of transparency, but Easdale insists those concerns are unfounded as well.

"I don't think there is secrecy. You have private investors who wants to stay anonymous, like any fund in London.

"As long as the transparency is given to the fans from the club, it doesn't matter who owns the shares.

"Ultimately, it stops at the executives of the club and they are the decision-makers so, unless you own 51 per cent of the shares, you won't be making those decisions."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
