CHARLES Green has promised to keep Rangers’ supporters updated over his takeover plans after being told he will have to earn their trust.

The former Sheffield United chief executive met fans yesterday following Rangers’ 4-0 win over St Johnstone in their final league game. Green had earlier disclosed his consortium’s plans for the club after signing an £8.5million deal with administrators.

Green issued a statement reiterating that his group, which he says features around 20 investors from the UK, Middle East and Asia, aim to take Rangers out of administration through a Company Voluntary Arrangement.

His statement read: “Nothing could have prepared me for the level of passion and commitment I saw over the last few days by all those with Rangers at heart.

“It was heart-warming to see players, supporters and staff all make clear to me how much they care about the club.

“I hope the consortium I lead can repay that commitment and we are now pressing on with the job of completing the sale of the club.”
