The Rangers board were booed on to the stage at Thursday's meeting but emerged triumphant after all five directors were re-elected and their four opponents failed in their bid to be appointed.
However, despite a clear mandate from shareholders, the fall-out from the meeting had Gers supporters and fans' representatives talking about boycotts and refusing to renew season tickets amid general disgruntlement.
Asked if he accepted there was a lack of trust in the board from the fans, Somers said: "Just at the beginning (of the AGM) there were boos but the rest of the meeting was very orderly.
"I was pleased that I got a nice round of applause after my speech which I thought was very generous of them.
"I thought the questions were fair and overall, I thought the mood of the meeting was very positive.
"I think there is trust from the majority of the fans but having looked at the dark corporate history of the club, I understand why, for some of the fans' groups, there is some distrust. It is our job to build up the trust but it will take time.
"And actually, if we look at the result of the AGM, you can see quite clearly that there is massive support for the board."
Somers, however, admits there are no plans to invite a fans' representative on to the board.
"I think a fan on the board would be a very singular situation," he said. "We are looking to set up a mechanism by which we can engage more democratically with the fans and get more fan representation.
"That is something that we will be talking with the fans groups about.
"There are various options. One option is to have a fan advisory board where we have a number of supporter groups on it. "
