Uncertainty continues at Rangers

02 March 2012 02:47

The futures of Rangers staff and players remain unclear following another day of talks with administrators Duff and Phelps.

Discussions have been taking place at the club's Murray Park training complex throughout Friday, with PFA Scotland chief executive Fraser Wishart also in attendance. The players' union chief also had formal discussions with the administrators and met with manager Ally McCoist and his players on Thursday.

The departures of director of football Gordon Smith and chief operating officer Ali Russell were confirmed last Thursday but administrators have yet to make cuts on the playing side.

An announcement on job losses could yet be made later on Friday, with reports suggesting staff have been presented with a number of options to mull over by the administrators in a bid to reduce costs.

Meanwhile, the Scottish Football Association said they expect their independent inquiry into the activities of Rangers to be completed next week.

The inquiry - which was announced on February 17, three days after Rangers were forced into administration - is chaired by Lord Nimmo Smith and his report will go to a special board meeting for consideration.
