RANGERS chief executive Graham Wallace believes that his cost-cutting drive has “unanimous support” within Ibrox, and has vowed to continue his review of “each and every individual in the organisation”.
In a wide-ranging exclusive interview with The Scotsman, Wallace said he had also been encouraged by the working relationship he has struck up with manager Ally McCoist.
Wallace was appointed CEO on 20 November last year and within a month he told Rangers’ agm that he would be conducting a 120-day root and branch review of the club and its finances. “I’ve been very encouraged by the discussions we’ve had and the response to my initial assessment as to what needs to be done,” he said. “I’d say I’ve had unanimous support.
“There was a bit of a backlash last week to the concept of a reduction in player wage costs. That’s an example of the area of the business we’re looking at right now. We’re looking at the executive team as well as the wider staff. What I seek is the supporters giving me the time to complete the review.”
