THOUSANDS of Rangers' fans will tonight stage a protest outside Ibrox Stadium to demand answers about the future of the club.
Led by the Union Bears and The Blue Order, two supporters' groups, it is the first demonstration directly targeting the club's new chief executive Charles Green.
And it comes as former Ibrox stars urged fans not to buy season tickets from the Rangers newco.
Several Rangers' legends, including Brian Laudrup, Jorg Albertz and Lorenzo Amoruso and former vice-chairman Donald Findlay, QC, are backing a plan by another ex-Ibrox star, John Brown, to lead a fans' buy-out.
It is understood Brown will attend tonight's protest.
A message on internet social networking site Facebook said the demonstration was being called due to "the rapid deterioration of the situation our club finds itself in".
It added: "the Union Bears, The Blue Order and all fans will be holding a protest outside Ibrox at 7pm. We demand answers from Mr Green immediately. The situation is critical and we as fans must act ... now. We need as many fans as possible.
"Rangers currently have not applied to the SFA for a football licence and only have to Friday to do so. Charles Green has no money and is going to asset strip."
Mark Dingwall, of the Rangers Supporters' Trust, said: "I think it's a natural expression of the fans' concerns about the direction of the club, in particular how we will retain as many high quality players as possible."
