Rangers have announced plans for the introduction of an official fans’ board with the aim of increasing and improving the level of dialogue between the club and its fan base.
An independent committee has been created to nominate individuals to sit on the board; they will consider Rangers season ticket holders and club members before drawing up a shortlist. Former Rangers defender David Weir is one of the names announced to be a part of the independent committee. The final choices will be determined by an online vote.
Rangers chief executive Graham Wallace told the club’s official website: “It is clear that the wider fan base is fully supportive of the creation of an official fans’ board so I am delighted to confirm this tangible step towards its implementation with the announcement of a nominations committee.
“The committee will select a number of candidates for election to the fans’ board they feel best placed to represent the interests of supporters around the world.
“The introduction of a fans’ board will provide the platform for more structured dialogue as well as providing the club with a better understanding of the issues and concerns of the fan base.
“I hope this process underlines our commitment to improving communications and engagement with our supporters.”
