Alan Rough has questioned the role that Club 1872 will play in the future of Rangers should they complete their purchase of shares.

It was confirmed on Tuesday that the fan group had completed their first purchase of shares from David King worth over £1million – something that takes their shares over 5%.

King had previously agreed a £13.3million deal with Club 1872 over three years, as they look to control a quarter of the club shares at Ibrox.


Speaking on the PLZ Football Show on Tuesday, Rough questioned the position that will be handed to fans at Ibrox should that be completed.

“It’s just where do you draw the line?” he said.

“I think that will be a big issue with Rangers. The supporters may have all of these shares and everything, but how much decision making are you going to let them make?

“I do think there is a part for them to play, I just think the power base at Rangers with Park and everybody there spending millions and millions, they’re not going to step aside and let supporters come in and make decisions.”


This will be something that needs to be resolved quickly.

Vice-Chairman of the club, John Bennett has already spoken out and urged Club 1872 to put money into the club after claiming these shares.

The Club have reiterated their desire to do just that, something which is bound to delight all of the Bears fanbase as this new journey begins.

Douglas Park is consistently pumping funds into the club, and this latest investment from Club 1872, has actually put them above Bennett in the shareholders’ listings.

This is a major day in the history of the Gers, let’s get behind it.
