Rangers fans urge meeting

The Rangers Supporters Trust has called for a meeting with the club's directors after Rangers were taken off the market.

Owner Sir David Murray confirmed he was no longer seeking a buyer for the Scottish champions after failing to secure an offer which he believes was in the best interests of the club.

A statement released by RST chair Stephen Smith read: "The Rangers Supporters Trust notes that the Murray Group are 'no longer actively marketing its controlling stake' in Rangers FC and hopes this heralds a period of much-needed stability. However we are concerned that Rangers remains in the hands of a reluctant owner who has not constructively participated in the club's affairs since October 2009."

A takeover seemed likely last week when a consortium fronted by London-based property developer Andrew Ellis announced they were in "advanced negotiations" to buy a controlling interest in Rangers, but the talks eventually came to nothing.
