WARM WELCOME: In Glasgow, John Shields wrote, "Green claims that he has been offered a way into English football." Green: "Two English clubs have come to me and said 'buy us and close us down. Take us for free and take on the liabilities.' I have spoken to a number of chief executives from Premier League clubs and all of them would welcome Rangers," (SCOTTISH SUN, 3/25). The SCOTSMAN reported, "Green stated that he does not want a free pass to the Premier League, and that if he was offered the chance for his team to join the English top flight he would 'turn it down.'" Green said, "What I do want to do is to start playing football in England, and knowing that if I win that league, I get promoted to the next one and the next one. And no one can stand there and say we can't get promoted because you are a Scottish club. Could you imagine the income generation Rangers and Celtic would create in the Conference? Every Conference stadium would be full" (SCOTSMAN, 3/25).
