Rangers boost off-field team
Scott joins board of directors at Ibrox
Rangers’ board has been bolstered by the arrival of Barry Scott (pic SNS Group).
Rangers have appointed Hong Kong-based businessman Barry Scott to the board of directors at Ibrox.
The lifelong fan was among a group of private investors who helped provide loans of £6.5million at the beginning of last year, with £5m of that cash being used to pay back Mike Ashley.
The club revealed the news in a brief statement, saying: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of Barry Scott as a director of Rangers International Football Club PLC.
“Barry is a successful businessman and lifelong supporter of the club.”
The Ibrox outfit is still on the look-out for a new manager after Derek McInnes turned down the chance to become Pedro Caixinha’s successor last week.
The board has been criticised for taking so long to make an appointment, the unsuccessful move for the current Aberdeen manager coming six weeks after the Portuguese’s departure.
Caretaker boss Graeme Murty has been asked to continue in that capacity until at least the end of the year while the club assesses other options.
