Rangers Ex-CEO Says That Club And Former Owner Whyte 'Could Fight For A Decade'
Published June 3, 2013
Former Rangers CEO Charles Green "has claimed that it may take 10 years for Rangers to get rid of" former Owner Craig Whyte, according to the SCOTSMAN. Whyte "is threatening to take the club to court over his claim that he still has rights over Ibrox assets." Green: "We might be fighting Whyte for the next 10 years, it's mind blowing. But the reality is Rangers is secure and it's moving forward" (SCOTSMAN, 6/1). Green feels the appointment of Walter Smith as non-exec chairman "is a massive step in the right direction as Rangers attempt to bring some much-needed stability to the club," according to Duncan & McCarthy of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. Green: "It is a fantastic thing. I got Walter to join the board before I left. I had asked him twice beforehand and he is now where I believe is his rightful place." Smith hinted that "when Rangers are back on an even keel he will bow out from the chairman's role." Smith: "I don't particularly see myself as a long-term chairman, in the sense that I would always think the job would be for someone who has far more business acumen. I certainly don't see myself in the position for a long, long time" (DAILY RECORD, 6/1).
