Rangers CEO Green Set To Launch Legal Campaign To Get Rangers Into English Football
Published March 5, 2013
ALTERNATIVE ROUTE: REUTERS' Keith Weir reported Green added that the alternative for Rangers "would be a place in a cross-border European league." The idea of Glasgow's "Old Firm" clubs playing in England has been around "for a number of years and has been rejected in the past by Premier League clubs." Although bringing big crowds, it would mean a couple of English teams "risked being squeezed out of the lucrative top flight." Rangers still draw crowds of 45,000. Green added that in the short-term, a planned restructuring of Scottish football should give Rangers "a quick route back towards the top of the Scottish game" (REUTERS, 3/4).
