Green hoping to bring Rangers legend Smith on board

Rangers chief executive Charles Green has revealed that he has offered club legend Walter Smith a spot on the board.

Former manager Smith, who led 'Gers to 21 titles during two stints at the helm, was close to gaining control of the club during the summer but Green beat him to it although the current chief is now ready to get the ex-Scotland boss on board at Ibrox.

"Walter and I have had a number of meetings and he comes to the games. He knows Rangers better than anyone. I'd love to get him back involved. I'd like to get him on the board and I would like to have him as an advisor," said Green.

"What Rangers need now is people who understand football, understand the club and understand the culture.

"There isn't anyone on the board at Ibrox just now who knows anything about football - and that includes me.

"You could carry my knowledge of football in a mouse's handkerchief! Someone like Walter would add great value. He knows more about Rangers than I'll ever know."
