THE CHAIRMAN of Montrose FC has offered an unreserved apology to Rangers following the publication of information poking fun at the Ibrox club in the matchday programme for the two sides’ clash at Links Park on Saturday.

A statement issued by Charles Green today said: “I and all our supporters were dismayed by some of the content of the matchday programme at Montrose on Saturday which was clearly intended to ridicule our Club.

“I have spoken personally to the Chairman of Montrose today and he and his fellow directors have offered Rangers an unreserved apology which I am happy to accept.

“We were made extremely welcome at Montrose on Saturday and the club’s hospitality was fantastic, as has been our experience throughout the SFL this season.”

Fans had expressed their disappointment during the weekend on various forums, with some demanding an apology and retraction from the Gable Endies whilst others praised Montrose for the overall coverage of the Ibrox club in the programme.
