RANGERS chief executive Charles Green is hoping the club’s Northern Irish fanbase supports a proposed share scheme to help the cash-strapped Ibrox outfit.
Green is currently on a two-day flying visit to the province to hold talks with a number of interested groups.
Rangers have deployed London-based Cenkos Securities to assist with plans to raise additional capital.
During his visit Green will update fans on what progress has taken place since his takeover during the summer.
Green – accompanied by financial aide Imran Ahmad – is keen to involve the club’s Northern Irish fans in any proposed share scheme.
The project has also been extended to supporters throughout the United Kingdom and North America.
Yesterday, Green also met with officials from Linfield Football Club, including chairman Jim Kerr.
Linfield hosted a special fundraising friendly in aid of the Gers at Windsor Park back in May.
During yesterday’s luncheon issues of mutual interest were discussed, including an invitation for Linfield to play a return friendly at Ibrox during the course of this season.
Linfield chairman Kerr said yesterday’s meeting was a “positive update” on Rangers’ progress,
“We had a very worthwhile meeting with Charles and his financial aide Imran Ahmad,” Kerr said.
“It highlights the close bond our two clubs have, and also the support Rangers Football Club has in Northern Ireland.
“It is important to keep this bond maintained during what are difficult times for the club and hopefully fans will unite to help in any way they can.”
During his visit Green also travelled to Stormont to meet with First Minister and DUP leader Peter Robinson, Ulster Unionist leader Mike Nesbitt, DRD Minister Danny Kennedy and other Unionist MLAs.
The Ibrox chief, aware of the supporting interest Rangers generates in Northern Ireland, was keen to keep the local politicians updated with progress on his club’s revival.
