Significant changes needed at boardroom level as Rangers questioned - Chris Jack

Chris Jack has shared that sweeping changes are needed at Rangers board and executive levels amid their latest crisis in all competitions.

The Bears board are said to have banked significant funds, with the level of investment simply needing to be upgraded after a summer of big windfalls.

Jack has shared that the off-field charge sheet is lengthy at Ibrox, with fights, ticket office and merchandise issues and other areas where the board have got things wrong.

Writing in his latest piece for the Glasgow Evening Times, Jack shared his verdict on everything that is going on at Ibrox in a time of much-needed change.

“As significant funds have been banked, the levels of investment in a side that needed upgrading to take it to the next level just haven’t been forthcoming,” he wrote.

“Off the park, the charge sheet is lengthy. From fights with the SPFL and the Press, from the ticket office to merchandise and fan relations to the Sydney Super Cup, there are so many areas where the board have got it badly wrong in recent seasons.

“The ethos and direction of Rangers starts at the top and trickles down. At board and executive level, sweeping changes – both in terms of personnel and strategy – are now needed.”

Changes.

They are needed, and desperately right now.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst appears to be taking most of the flack with his job security being questioned and threatened more with each passing game.

The Ibrox board has not helped him one little bit with the lack of spending despite the windfalls seemingly never being as high, certainly in recent history.

Getting into the Champions League after reaching the final of the Europa League has brought in over £50million, and then you add in the player sales which take that to nearly £100million.

Yet, less than £10million looks to have been spent so where has it all gone?

The transparency is simply not there and maybe it will only come with big changes to the boardroom to help reconnect not only the fans to the board but the management too.

Something needs to change, and it could be dramatic with some sweeping changes – time will tell.
