It is being reported today that today Charles Green has resigned as a consultant at Rangers and will sell his majority shareholding in the club. This news comes after the three major supporters organisations asked for him to be removed from his role. This news will make a lot of Rangers fans happy as in recent days they have spoken out against him in the media expressing concern.
The former Gers chief executive returned to Ibrox earlier this month,This was met with alarm due to allegations of links with Craig Whyte accompanied by a series of inopportune comments.
Mark Dingwall of the Rangers Supporters Trust told The Evening Times:
“I am delighted that Mr Green is moving on.
“The chaos of the last few month has almost entirely been down to him and his colleagues behaviour.
“It has not been good for the club and I hope that the process of ‘cleansing’ that Ally McCoist referred to can now continue to sweep all of the bad elements out of Rangers.
“We want a healthy and vibrant club to support once again.
“I take my hat off to Mr Green for raising £22million in the IPO for a Third Division club in the weeks before Christmas.
“However, the baggage that he has brought to Rangers in the last few months has been extremely bad for the club.
“I am glad that he has stepped down from his position and is set to sell his shareholding.
