Is Charles Green thinking straight?

So the chief executive of Rangers has threatened to take the club out of Scottish football if the current proposals for league reconstruction are voted into being. The question is where would they go, at least in the short term, as there is no word of any offers pouring in to accommodate him.

Under the present league set up it would take the Ibrox club a minimum of three years to progress back to the top flight which would still represent the same time scale even if the new set up began next season.

There have been some suggestions that as division three champions, as seems most likely this season, the club would be denied promotion but there would still be an upward trend in real terms as their new place would be in the third tier of Scottish football as opposed to the current fourth.

In the meantime by sticking with the Scottish game Rangers have a golden opportunity to put their finances on a very firm footing over the next two and a half seasons, because they still command a very large partisan support which would love to see the team back in Scotland’s top division.

On a personal note the writer is not a supporter of either half of the old firm, but as a keen football fan would like to see the old firm derbies back on a permanent basis.

Nevertheless, there may come a time when the opportunity to move out of Scotland will arise, and if it does, it is to be hoped that those charged with making that decision will put the interests of the fans first to ensure that they don’t lose out.

Football daft for as long as I can remember. Lifelong Liverpool fan and Socialist. Has actually stood on the Anfield pitch. Played the game, refereed it and reported on it. Best playing time was at under 18 level and enjoyed indoor 5 aside until injury forced me out at 52.
