Scottish Championship Side Rangers Announce Official Fans' Board For Next Season
Scottish Championship side Rangers supporters will be given a "louder voice next season with the creation of an official fans' board," according to Sam Shedden of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. An external, independent nominations committee -- which includes former team captain David Weir and Scottish rugby player Alastair Kellock -- has been "set up to review applications and nominate a shortlist of supporters for election." The panel will consider applications from "season-ticket holders and club members" and then decide on a final "shortlist of candidates who will be voted for by fans." Rangers CEO Graham Wallace said, "The committee will select candidates they feel are best placed to represent the interests of supporters around the world. ... The fans' board will provide the platform for more structured dialogue as well as a better understanding of the issues and concerns of the fanbase" (DAILY RECORD, 7/21).
