Club chief executive Craig Mather has confirmed an internal investigation is being
carried out into an email allegedly written by an employee of Media House. The email questioned the intelligence of Light Blues legend Greig, who was named Greatest Ever Ranger in 1999, and derided his contribution to the club board.
A joint statement issued by the Rangers Supporters Assembly, Association and Trust today has called on the club to take action if
the email is genuine.
It read: "The fans
organisations are horrified to learn that the club's chief executive has felt the need to launch an investigation into alleged comments about John Greig. Such comments, if true, are seriously derogatory about the Greatest Ever Ranger. If Media House have made these alleged comments we urge the Board to take swift and decisive action. Our club has
always had high standards, as exemplified by John Greig's service to the club."
The Rangers board sparked outrage among the Govan club's fans last week when they
extended the contract of Media House. The company was previously involved with the Craig Whyte regime.
Mather said: "I do not know anything about that (email) but I have asked people to do some digging on that and come back with a mini-report. John Greig is a legend. I have tried on numerous occasions to see if he would come back to the club."
Jack Irvine of Media House said: "The whole leaking of emails is being investigated by the police at the highest level so I cannot
comment on that."
