WOULD-BE Rangers saviour John Brown has claimed Ibrox chairman Malcolm Murray pulled out of a meeting in which he'd promised to produce paperwork to show who owns the club's assets.
Murray had been due to meet Brown and former Rangers director Donald Findlay QC yesterday after the former player demanded to see documents proving the ownership of the club, stadium and training ground.
However, the Ibrox club insisted the meeting would take place later in the week.
A statement released by Brown said Murray had "cancelled a meeting at which he promised to produce the paperwork which would show who owns Rangers".
Brown, who won several titles with Rangers in the 1990s, said Findlay had agreed to the meeting to give his legal opinion on the paperwork.
He said: "Donald just wants to help Rangers supporters be able to get all the facts so they can make up their own minds whether or not they should buy season tickets."
Brown, who is leading an attempted fans' buyout, added: "Now we will try and get Malcolm Murray to the table again and give him another chance to show who owns Rangers and who owns Ibrox Stadium, the Albion car park and the Auchenhowie Training Complex.
"But after what has happened, I am not hopeful."
A spokesman for the club said: "The meeting with John Brown has been rescheduled, not cancelled."
Brown insisted that no new meeting had been confirmed.
Murray previously urged Brown, who quit his role as club scout to mount the fans' ownership bid, to unite with Sevco and chief executive Charles Green.
Sevco is awaiting an SFA decision about the level of football at which they can relaunch Rangers next season but already know they will be barred from European competition for three years for failing to meet financial criteria.
Meanwhile, Green has vowed to pursue legal claims against the players who refused to join his new company. Norwich-bound Steven Whittaker and Kyle Lafferty, who joined Swiss side Sion, became the first of 10 players who objected to their transfer to Green's club to secure transfers.
Green revealed he had written to every league club in the UK warning them to stay away from the players.
He said: "If they are really looking at playing in Europe, they would stay at Rangers and play because the reality is that, before Norwich play in Europe, Rangers will be back in Europe.
"I don't accept that this is a career move – it's for financial gain, no other reason."
Lafferty earlier defended the players', pointing out they had accepted pay cuts of up to 75% in February in a bid to prevent the club being liquidated.
