Ally McCoist's side will lift the SPFL League One title after their match against Stranraer and the Union of Fans had planned to crank up the pressure on the Light Blues hierarchy with a card display and vocal protests at the stadium.

Around 30,000 leaflets were also due to be distribute,d but the plans have been shelved following the death of club legend Sandy Jardine on Thursday night.

A UoF spokesman said: "The Union of Fans had planned a large scale protest, display and leafleting at the game.

"This will now be cancelled following the sad passing of Sandy Jardine. We hope that Saturday will now be solely about honouring a fantastic servant of Rangers Football Club."

The visit of Stranraer this afternoon marks Rangers' final home game of the campaign and was the last chance for a large scale demonstration against the embattled board.

Chief executive Graham Wallace yesterday released the details of his 120-day business review, with the findings met with dismay by fans after the true scale of the financial picture at Ibrox was laid bare.

While Wallace played down the threat of a second administration, he confirmed that the club had burned through almost £70million worth of season ticket cash and money raised when Rangers was floated on the stock market in 2012.

Former Ibrox director Dave King has yet to comment on the findings but a UoF statement said: "We are dismayed and hugely disappointed with the content of Graham Wallace's review but given events over the past 24 hours and as a mark of respect to Sandy Jardine and his family we will not be offering any further comment until early next week when we will issue a full statement."
