Rangers CEO Green Calls For Promotion Of Team To Second Division In New Set-Up
Published March 20, 2013
PAYING OPPONENTS: Also in Glasgow, McCarthy reported in a seperate piece Green "dangled a carrot in front of lower-league clubs by promising to pay those visited by a Rangers B team a guarantee of the equivalent of 300 fans coming through the gates" -- a sum which would boost their coffers by anything from £3,000-£4,000 ($4,500-$6,000). Green said, "A Rangers Colts team would add value to the league, and other clubs would see their home gates enhanced significantly. I would also be prepared to guarantee other clubs the ticket revenue equivalent of 300 Rangers fans turning up" (DAILY RECORD, 3/19).
