former Sheffield United chief executive Charles Green’s plans for Rangers do not include the sale and leaseback of Ibrox and Murray Park, according to the Rangers Fans Fighting Fund.

Green’s prospective ownership consortium has pledged £8.5million for creditors who will be able to vote on a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) next week. Representatives of the RFFF had a three-hour meeting with Green where a wide range of issues concerning the consortium’s proposal were discussed. One report claimed Green’s consortium were prepared to consider all options to protect their investment - including sale and leaseback of the club’s stadium and training complex.

However, the RFFF said: “As agreed between Charles Green and the RFFF, certain business sensitive information cannot be disclosed at this time. The RFFF is, however, able to announce that it secured a commitment from Charles Green that he and his consortium will not be mortgaging nor disposing of any of the property assets of Rangers Football Club plc.”
