We are aware of the frustration felt by supporters, not just of Rangers but of many other Scottish clubs, over the refusal of the SPFL to properly address the serious allegations made against their executive team and Chairman over the conduct of the vote to potentially end the 2019/20 Scottish Premiership season prematurely. It is clear that the SPFL strategy is to bury their heads in the sand and refuse to address the serious, publicly articulated problems with the way in which the voting process was conducted and the information given to clubs as part of that voting process. These issues have not just been raised by Rangers but by a number of other clubs across all leagues in Scotland. As a result of this intransigence, the matter can now be addressed only by an independent inquiry or in a court of law.
We would like to reassure supporters that, despite the refusal of Neil Doncaster, Rod McKenzie and Murdoch Mclennan to address these issues voluntarily, options remain open to Rangers to make progress without their cooperation. We know from ongoing, detailed discussions with the club that they are actively pursuing those options. It is quite correct that care is taken to do that in order to provide the best chance of a successful outcome.
At the very least, Scottish football supporters deserve decisions taken about the future of the Scottish game to be made in a transparent and competent way. That has not been the case in this debacle and it reflects badly on the entire game in this country. We hope that other Scottish clubs will support Rangers in cleaning up the way our game is governed when the time comes. If not then every club will suffer the repercussions as sponsors and supporters alike turn away from the game.
We have also been in close discussion with Rangers about the status of season ticket renewals and the unique situation created by the ongoing restrictions and uncertainty over the Covid-19 pandemic. We know the club is working extremely hard to provide the best possible options for supporters with regard to purchasing a season ticket for next season – including payments options, deadlines and payment methods. Clearly season ticket revenues are crucial to the club and we are sure supporters will do whatever they can, within their own personal circumstances, to back the club financially through these uncertain times. We aim to provide supporters with as much detail as possible on their options both prior to and following the launch of season tickets, which we expect to take place within the next 7 days. We will update our members and the wider support on this again when we have further information.
In the meantime, please continue to direct any questions to. We have longer than normal response times due to the personal circumstances of our volunteer board members at this time but please rest assured that all emails are being read and although we may not be able to respond to them all individually we will raise pertinent issues with the club and work the response into future updates where we are able.< Back
