Green to move forward despite three more clubs saying they will vote no to Rangers newco

The Rangers crisis deepened last night with the news that three more clubs say they will vote no to Charles Green's newco.

The Ibrox club are hoping that at least eight Scottish Premier League clubs vote for them remaining in the top flight but it appears as though they will be forced down to the Third Division after Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Aberdeen and St Johnstone confirmed last night they would vote against the new company.

Those three clubs have joined Dundee United, Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian leaving Green's Rangers in a quandary but the new owner insists he is still keen to get the Glasgow club back on track.

"I'm obviously disappointed, but we have to deal with the cards we have been dealt," he told Sky Sports.

"It's unfortunate people have come out and made these comments when my understanding was that there was going to be a vote next Wednesday, but I can't control other clubs.

"The consortium realised that if we went down the newco route it was a risk. It doesn't alter their resolve.

"Those guys invested knowing these were obstacles that were outside their control and the resolve is there to see this job finished.

"I said at Murray Park on 13th May that my job will be finished when we have got financial security, when the debts are paid, when it's floated on the stock market and the fans have got the right and the opportunity to buy shares. And nothing has changed since 13th May."
