Rangers fans will dine out on stake in club

I AM sure the ongoing off-field issues at Rangers are increasing the enthusiasm for greater fans' involvement in the running of the Ibrox club.

Around 20,000 fans paying £20 monthly would be needed to make CIC scheme work

Supporters Direct Scotland held a meeting with a group of fans in the Louden Tavern last week to outline how to set up a Community Interest Company.

A working party, which will look further into the vehicle that allowed Dunfermline and Hearts fans to buy their clubs, is in the process of being formed.

I think fans are right to go down this route.

Apparently, it would take around 20,000 Rangers fans parting with £20 a month to make a CIC scheme work.

If Hearts can get just short of 8,000 fans then I think that is an achieveable goal.

I know times are hard for people. But Gers supporters feel passionately about their club at the moment and want to do what they can to help them.

I think they would get far more than 20,000 people from all over the world who would be prepared to put in £20 or so a month if it helps their club.

The different factions of the Light Blues support do seem to spend a lot of time fighting among themselves. I can't understand why they can't join together and work as one for the betterment of the club they all love.
