Rangers newco: Inverness rally fans with newco decision
Inverness chairman Kenny Cameron believes Scottish Premier League clubs’ refusal to admit newco Rangers has re-energised his club’s relationship with its supporters.
With Inverness one of the clubs to vote against the Ibrox side’s free pass to the top flight, Cameron reckons the club and its fans have pulled together on the thorny topic and he urged supporters to purchase season- tickets now the question has been answered.
He said: “The newco debate actually created a re-energised relationship between the club and our fans, so it’s important to build on that.
“We took on board their comments, with all the potential financial uncertainty that was attached to that decision, and we now need those who were refuseniks until we voted no to newco to come forward and do what they promised, as season- ticket income is the lifeblood of a community club like ours.”
Cameron hopes Scottish football can now move on from the Rangers situation. “Now that the SPL decision has been taken, and we have voted in accordance with clearly-expressed wishes of the vast majority of our sponsors, season-ticket holders and supporters on the issue, it is time to move on,” he said.
“There is now common determination to improve the future from the uncertainty of the last few months.
“Time is not on our side, with the league programme scheduled to start on 4 August, but there is certainly time to lay down the foundations for change.”
The chairman of Caley Thistle Supporters’ Trust, Peter Murphy, praised the club for their decision regarding the Rangers newco and echoed Cameron’s rallying cry to fans.
“The club has stood up to pressure and voted the way the supporters wanted, so now it’s time for us to stand up and be counted,” he said. “It’s important that fans now carry out the promises they made that they’d buy their season-tickets once they knew Caley Thistle had voted the way they wanted.”
