SFA talks please Rangers chief

24 July 2012 02:16

Rangers newco chief executive Charles Green hopes to secure membership of the Scottish Football Association within 24 hours.

Green believes he has reached a broad agreement with the SFA and Scottish Football League but has still to sort issues out with the Scottish Premier League.

Green told Rangers TV: "We are making good progress. I spoke to the chief executive of the SFA, Stewart Regan, this morning and that went very well."

Green's Sevco Scotland company need to secure the transfer of Rangers' membership in order to relaunch the Ibrox club on the pitch during Sunday's scheduled Ramsdens Cup first-round clash with Brechin at Glebe Park.

Sevco will have to accept a 12-month transfer embargo handed to Rangers in April but manager Ally McCoist will be able to sign players for his upcoming Irn-Bru Third Division campaign until the ban kicks in at the end of the current transfer window.

Green added: "I have also just spoken to (SPL chief executive) Neil Doncaster and I will be meeting both of them later today.

"I'm really hopeful now that within the next 24 hours we can have this thing signed and sealed and Alastair can start loading his players on a team coach to go up and try to win a match on Sunday.

"Most of the things are now clear to all parties. As far as I am concerned now we have no outstanding issues with the SFA. It's now purely process and documentation.

"We have no issues with the football league and just some minor points to resolve with the SPL and I'm hopeful we can to that today."
