SPL vote over newco Rangers is a long way from formality
Charles Green confident on chairmen
SCOTTISH Premier League clubs were gathering today for a scheduled vote on a newco Rangers application, but the meeting looks far from the formality it seemed just several days ago.
Before the weekend, seven SPL clubs confirmed their intention to vote against the bid from Charles Green’s Sevco company to assume the share of Rangers, whose assets they bought for £5.5 million.
But Green claimed earlier this week he was confident chairmen would listen to his pleas after meeting several clubs to warn them of the financial implications.
Only St Johnstone reaffirmed their position after reports claimed Green was attempting to push through an offer that included points deductions, a transfer ban and an apology on behalf of Rangers.
Club chairman Malcolm Murray later issued an “unreserved” apology for the distress caused to Scottish football.
