Rangers chief Green accuses SPL of withholding cash

Rangers chief executive Charles Green suggests that the Scottish Premier League are the reason why the club is struggling financially.

The Ibrox club were demoted to the Third Division after cash struggles saw them fall into liquidation in the summer but Green feels the SPL are to blame as they did not help out with money they owed them and are now trying to strip the club of their titles.

"We were thrown out of the SPL, they stole our money that we were due from the previous season," Green told Sky Sports News. "They are now pursuing title stripping.

"There was money due to Rangers football club from Sky and part of the Sky Cheque was for finishing second in the league. That money has never been paid over and has been kept by the SPL.

"And this was part of the five-way agreement and we were saddled with loads of debts, liabilities that were old-co but then when it was new-co's turn and they changed the rules again.

"For me it is very difficult to forgive and forget. And I'm going to deal with these issues as I can over the next few years.

"I said recently, I'm not going to leave until we see Champions League music played at Ibrox and I'm sticking by Ally McCoist until we get to that position."
