Green was discussing the Ibrox side’s potential involvement in a European League, which he believes will be formed in the future because “big teams can’t keep subsidising small teams”.

He was also quoted as saying: “How can Manchester United’s revenues be £320m and Aston Villa, who are completely useless, get £250m?”

A statement from Rangers yesterday read: “Rangers chief executive Charles Green has apologised to Aston Villa following a press briefing last week in which he referred to the Midlands Club. Mr Green has sent an apology to Aston Villa saying there had been no intention to cause offence.”
