GREEN WANTS DEBATE: In Glasgow, Derek Alexander reported former Rangers CEO Charles Green "challenged rivals for Rangers to a TV debate in front of fans to reveal who should run Ibrox." Green "insists a US presidential-style showdown would torpedo bidders vying to oust directors and take charge." Green "threw down the gauntlet" to former Dir Paul Murray, former Chair Malcolm Murry and minority shareholder Jim McColl. Green also "invited financial expert Frank Blin to attend the TV debate." Green said, "I think we need a televised debate and get myself, Paul Murray, Jim McColl and Frank Blin to ask each other questions in front of fans and give their vision for the club. I'll be London next week to meet investors and institutions to see what their mood is. Next week is going to be huge. By a week on Monday, the lines will be clearly drawn and everyone will know who's supporting who" (Scotland DAILY RECORD, 8/11).
FANS PROTEST: Also in Glasgow, Wilson & Harrison reported Rangers supporters "staged a series of protests against Charles Green and the club's board" during Saturday's victory over Brechin City at Ibrox. Chanting songs and "waving banners throughout the game, they made clear their anger at the former chief executive and the directors." Three banners "were unfurled before kick-off at Ibrox. There were two in the Govan Stand, one reading 'Green & co it's time to go,' and the other saying, 'In Walter we trust, this board is the worst in our history.'" Just before the final whistle, "the same group of fans yelled at the director's box, 'You greedy b******s, get out of our club'" (HERALD SCOTLAND, 8/11).
