Rangers chief Green apologises to "useless" Aston Villa

Rangers chief executive Charles Green has made an apology to Aston Villa.

Rangers chief executive Charles Green has made an apology to Aston Villa.

Green disparaged Villa last week when he was discussing his side's potential involvement in a European League - which he believes will be formed in the future because "big teams can't keep subsidising small teams."

He was also quoted as saying: "How can Manchester United's revenues be £320m and Aston Villa, who are completely useless, get £250m?"

A Gers statement ready yesterday:

"Rangers chief executive Charles Green has apologised to Aston Villa following a press briefing last week in which he referred to the Midlands Club.

"Mr Green has sent an apology to Aston Villa saying there had been no intention to cause offence."
