Intimidated Rangers boss puts threats into context

Have your say

RANGERS chief executive Charles Green, the former Sheffield United chief, has apologised to fans for revealing he received death threats in the early stages of his spell in control at Ibrox.

In a newspaper interview, Green revealed he was forced to change his address week to week and was “physically intimidated on the streets of Glasgow”.

However, he later apologised to supporters for any “upset” the article caused. Green said: “I was trying to get across how far we have travelled together since the dark days of the club being put into administration and subsequent liquidation of the old company.

“No words can express the gratitude I feel towards Rangers fans at the way they have stood by the club in one of its darkest hours. They have risen to the challenge of helping rebuild this great institution and have won widespread admiration across the world for their backing.

“Not a day goes by without foreign TV journalists telling me how amazed they are by the response of fans as they continue to back the club.”
