Former Rangers vice-chairman Donald Findlay hopes the appointment of a new chief executive at Ibrox can help the club restore some of its dignity.

The departed Charles Green is facing allegations of being involved with former owner Craig Whyte when his consortium bought the club last summer.

Businessman Craig Mather – appointed director of sports development at the Glasgow side last summer – has been touted as a potential successor to Green.

Cowdenbeath chairman Findlay still has more than a passing interest in his former club and hopes off-field distractions can become a thing of the past. He said: “I think it’s very difficult to know what is going on at Rangers. Rangers are still very much in my heart and I want to see them settle down with stability, and building for the future.

“In my day at Rangers we sorted everything out behind the scenes, we did not wash our laundry in public and that’s how it should be. I think the club has lost a bit of dignity and that’s why I say that you’ve got to get the right people with the club’s interests at heart. That’s the way ahead, and stop any kind of infighting and personalised issues.

“I didn’t ever meet Mr Green and didn’t know him. There were clearly some kind of issues behind the scenes. I have no doubt they will look to bring in somebody that has Rangers at heart and I think that’s important, not just a businessman but someone that understands what the club is all about.

“The game needs Rangers back at the highest level, that is beyond a shadow of a doubt and I think supporters of every club would agree with that.”
