Rangers: Walter Smith backs proposed Ibrox changes

WALTER Smith is backing recently proposed boardroom changes at Ibrox after his “heart-breaking” decision to quit as Rangers chairman.

The 65-year-old urged supporters to rally behind the bid for power by former oldco Rangers director Paul Murray and Scottish accountant Frank Blin. Smith has grown frustrated with the divided nature of the board and said in a statement issued late on Monday night: “Working with a board which could rarely find consensus has created a highly dysfunctional environment which has not been good for the club.

“On top of that, there has been recent further disruption which has rendered the board less effective and efficient than it ought to have been.

“It is clear that boardroom change is required and I would urge Rangers fans to get behind the resolutions which last week were presented to the board and shareholders.”
