RANGERS fans have elected the first board of supporter organisation Club 1872 after the results of the top table ballot were revealed on Friday.

Sons of Struth founder Craig Houston topped the poll with 1044 votes and was followed by James Blair and William Cowie.

Iain Leiper and former Ibrox Requisitioner Alex Wilson received 705 and 680 votes respectively, while Laura Fawkes and Joanne Percival were also elected.

Andrew Jenkin, Head of Supporters Direct Scotland, said:“I can confirm we have verified the results of the inaugural Club 1872 Elections and are happy that a thorough process was undertaken to ensure a fair vote has taken place and that any issues that have been raised to us throughout this process have been addressed by the Working Group.

"We’d like to congratulate the candidates who have been elected to the board and hope that those who on this occasion were unsuccessful aren’t deterred to stay involved and contribute.

"As agreed with the Club 1872 Working Group, SD Scotland will be producing a short report with recommendations for the new board to consider implementing to ensure Club 1872 is as strong, independent and democratic third sector organisation as possible."
