Rangers Board Commissions Inquiry Into Charles Green's Takeover Of Club
Published April 15, 2013
CASTING DOUBT: In London, Walker & Campbell reported Rangers Manager Ally McCoist "welcomed the decision." McCoist: "Having said for many weeks I hoped for clarity and honesty, I’m obviously delighted. The board have said they are appointing an independent commission to look into matters, which is the least our fans deserve." Green's "growing isolation at Ibrox was perhaps emphasized" by Rangers statement saying that he will face the Scottish FA charges "without the club’s support." The statement added, "Mr. Green will deal with the pending SFA charge on this matter on a personal basis." Green has denied agreeing to act as a front for Whyte before he took charge at Ibrox, insisting that "he only told Whyte what he wanted to hear so he could get his shares" (SUNDAY TIMES, 4/14).
