Supporters offer aid to financially troubled Rangers

Rangers chief executive Martin Bain has thanked those supporters who have offered help to the cash strapped club. Bain revealed "thousands" of Rangers fans had offered assistance after Walter Smith lifted the lid on the extent of the financial problems facing Rangers.

But worried fans have sought to help improve the club's plight as majority shareholder Sir David Murray seeks a buyer.

Bain said: "It has been a difficult period for fans both in regard to results and speculation about the future of the club.

"However, they have stepped up to the plate in their thousands to voice their support for Rangers.

"We have been inundated with emails, letters and phone calls and the overarching message from the fans is that the interests of Rangers must come first and foremost - a sentiment held dear by the board of directors, Walter Smith and myself.

"I cannot express strongly enough the club's gratitude for this show of support and it reflects the true spirit of Rangers.

"Numerous supporters have expressed a desire to help the club in one way or another. This is appreciated greatly by all of us at Rangers.

"One clear way for fans to assist the club at this stage is to help ensure that our team has the continued benefit of our full support.

"It means so much to the players in both domestic and European fixtures and it would benefit the overall welfare of the club."
