FOOTBALL fans are being given the chance to shape the future of Rangers.

The club is inviting applications from supporters to form the Official Rangers Fans Board, to give feedback to the board and senior management.

It hopes the scheme will build trust with fans - and help send Rangers back to the top of Scottish football.

Members will be chosen by the Nominations Committee, made up of Rev Stuart MacQuarrie, former Rangers Captain David Weir, international rugby star Alastair Kellock and supporters Tom Mowbray, Mhairi McKenzie, Melville Curry, Ross Hardie and Holly-Jade Johnston.

Club members - including season ticket holders for 2014/15 - can complete an online application form at fansboard.rangers.co.uk before the deadline of 9am on Tuesday August 19.

The committee will then evaluate the candidates and create a shortlist of nominees to represent the range of different fans at the Ibrox club.

The Official Rangers Fans Board will be made up of 12 supporters and meet a minimum of four times per season.

Members will also be expected to meet with the board and senior management to express the views of fans of the club.

The move follows a tumultuous two years for Rangers, which has faced instability and heavy criticism from supporters.

Most recently, the Union of Fans revealed it is in talks with the Glasgow club over the future of the SPFL League One champions' main assets - Ibrox Stadium and the Murray Park training ground.
