Rangers board must have 'right answers' as Ibrox D-day fast approaches
Rangers must have the “right answers” prepared for the club’s Annual General Meeting on 6 December, says Alan Rough.
The club released their annual report and accounts for the year ending 30 June 2022, along with confirmation of the upcoming AGM.
Rough feels the board will have to have explanations ready to shed light on the current financial situation at the club.
“They’re investors and investors invest for profit and when you put in four or five million you want to know what the deal is at the end of the day,” he said (PLZ Football Show, 1901, 8 November)
“You have to congratulate people who supported the club as they threw everything at trying to win the Europa and the league.
“But at the end of the day when you look at the money that’s gone out and the money that’s come in, they’ll have to have the right answers on that day [AGM].”
The start of December promises to be a huge period in recent history for the Gers, with questions finally set to be asked directly to the board. The accounts which have been recently published are for the financial year up to 30 June 2022, which was before the Light Blues cashed in on some of their biggest assets in the summer.
Supporters should be keeping a keen eye on the accounts released next year to really understand where some of the incoming transfer fees disappeared to. The Ibrox board will be heading into the AGM fully aware of the fan feeling surrounding the club at the moment.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst is somehow still clinging onto his job at Ibrox despite some damaging domestic defeats and awful performances in the Champions League. His side face Hearts at Ibrox on Wednesday (9 November), with anything less than a win seeing his Ibrox tenure come under immense scrutiny.
