SFA President Ogilvie Seeks To Chat With Rangers CEO Charles Green
Scottish Football Association President Campbell Ogilvie is looking to sit down with Rangers CEO Charles Green in a "bid to repair the currently fractious relationship" between the Ibrox club and the Scottish football authorities, according to Stephen Halliday of the SCOTSMAN. Green is scheduled to attend another SFA disciplinary hearing at Hampden on Thursday, after "being cited for calling into question" the integrity of the Scottish Premier League’s Independent Commission. Due to a potential conflict of interest from his previous job as Rangers' general secretary, Ogilvie has not taken part in any of the SFA's involvement in the Rangers crisis. Ogilvie has acknowledged it has left him unable to fully carry out his duties as SFA president and he is now "keen to try and facilitate peace talks with the outspoken Green." Ogilvie said, "One of things I would certainly like to do is sit down with Charles Green. I haven’t even met the man yet. As I haven’t spoken to him yet, I can’t really quantify the depth of his feelings. Rangers is one of the two biggest clubs in the country and I believe that by speaking to people, issues can be resolved." Ogilvie also stressed again that ongoing discussions over league reconstruction in Scotland are "not geared to providing Rangers with a quicker return" from the Third Division to the top flight. He did confirm that Scottish clubs’ participation in a "proposed pan-European league structure is on the agenda" (SCOTSMAN, 10/2).
