Fan Groups Urge Rangers Board To End Charles Green's Advising Role With The Club
Published August 20, 2013
ADVERT REVIEW: In Edinburgh, Angus Howarth reported the Advertising Standards Agency "is to review an advert in which Rangers were described as the ‘most successful’ club in Scotland." The claim "prompted nearly 80 complaints that the advert, which was used to promote season tickets for the Ibrox club, was misleading." Complainants said that the club "had only been formed last year" when the Sevco consortium, led by Green, "bought the assets" for £5.5M, but the watchdog "had already cleared the advert." However, former top civil servant Hayden Phillips, who acts as the independent reviewer of ASA decisions, said that "there had been flaws in the way the decision had been taken" (THE SCOTSMAN, 8/19).
