CHARLES Green, the former Rangers chief executive, is raising funds to invest in the Scottish Championship club.

The former owner told BBC Sport he has raised nearly £10m with the aim of stabilising the club, which he said was in a perilous position.

Green said he would not be seeking a return to Rangers in an official capacity, but called the club “one of the world’s biggest brands”, adding that he had gathered a group of investors ready to sign up to his venture.

He told the BBC: “I’ve told people this is a great club and a great opportunity. It’s one of the world’s biggest brands in terms of football.

“I don’t want to go back to Rangers, I left unhappy last year and know it wouldn’t be right to go back. However, to see where the club is now is a disaster.”

Green also appeared to question the loyalty of fans who would refuse Green’s investment, saying that should they do so they would not be “real fans”.

He added: ““Fans need to unite. One week it’s the Sons of Struth and then the Union of Fans - there is no union of fans.

“I’d love to see all the fans unite and hate me - at least then they’d be united. It’s a disjointed fan base and someone needs to stand up and say it how it is.”
