Today marks the anniversary of the Ibrox club's descent into administration and subsequent liquidation.

Chief executive Green headed the consortium which took over the club which are now playing in Irn-Bru Division Three.

While benefiting from huge crowds at Ibrox this season, Rangers announced they had raised more than £22million from their listing on the stock exchange in December.

Green insists that money will provide the bedrock for a return to the top flight, telling Rangers' official website: "As a club we are not just ready to move on - we have moved on.

"The successful flotation of the club on the Alternative Investment Market was the biggest single step on the road to recovery.

"The fact that our business could attract in excess of £22 million of investment in a challenging economic climate was heart-warming testament to the belief of investors from City institutions to individual fans.

"Shares have performed well and the capitalisation of the club has meant that we have very sound financial foundations for the future.

"No effort will be spared in pursuing avenues where our financial security can be developed and enhanced and we will be making announcements regarding this in due course.

"All along, we have known that the rebuilding of the club on the pitch will take time and we are prepared for that.

Green went on to praise the work of manager, Ally McCoist, and the club`s supporters.

"Given the events of the last year, Ally McCoist deserves everyone's full support as he and his team continue to make the Rangers team strong again.

"Finally, the most outstanding feature of the last year has been Rangers fans themselves. Nothing could have prepared me for what I have seen at Ibrox and around the world.

"Loyalty is an overused word but the attitude of Rangers supporters in the last 12 months to the club they love has been the true essence of loyalty and humbling to witness.

"Moreover, the strength of character shown by supporters has won recognition and admiration both here and internationally.

"Every Rangers supporter stands tall today and can look forward. We are on the way back."
