35,000 renewed so far

King to spend season ticket income on squad

Dave King videoRangers chairman Dave King intends to use the £13 million expected from season ticket sales to strengthen the playing squad.

The club has so far sold 35,000 tickets books and expects that to exceed the 43,000 tickets sold last summer.

Supporters may have been disappointed to finish a long way behind Celtic, but Rangers will return to European action after booking a Europa League slot, which represents a change of fortune for the club.

The Ibrox chairman said: “I can only marvel at the steadfast loyalty of our supporters. “They are appreciated all over the world for the way they have stood by the club in the past five years. On behalf of the board and staff I thank every one of them.

‘The team didn’t perform to expectation this season but it is important to remember that some targets have been met.

“In particular, getting back into European competition was one of our non-negotiables for this season. We are now back on that stage and looking forward immensely to the Europa League qualifiers and our ongoing involvement in Europe in the years to come.

“Pedro Caixinha [the head coach] and his backroom team have been assessing the squad since having arrived at Rangers, and will make the necessary changes in the summer so that we are as well prepared as possible for the qualifiers and the new season.

“All of our season ticket money will be invested in the football squad as we continue to work towards taking our club back to the very top of Scottish Football.

“The fact that we have already reached almost 35,000 renewals – against what has been a backdrop of transition and managerial change – demonstrates the terrific fan base that we have. “Thank you again for your loyalty and support.”
