Scottish Third Division Rangers Hire Law Firm To Probe Ex-Owner Craig Whyte Links
Published April 23, 2013
SPLIT DECISION: The SCOTSMAN reported Rangers board is "reportedly split 3-3 over potential new CEO Craig Mather." The board is "split into opponents and supporters" of Green. Walter Smith, Malcolm Murray and Philip Cartmell "are against Mather’s ascension to the top of the Ibrox hierarchy," while Brian Stockbridge, Ian Hart and Bryan Smart "are in favour of Mather" (SCOTSMAN, 4/22). In Glasgow, Keith Jackson reported it is anticipated Mather’s appointment "will be pushed through, against opposition." However, the very fact that "it was not simply rubberstamped during a scrambled board meeting on Saturday underlines the deep divisions at the club’s heart" (DAILY RECORD, 4/22).
