DISGRUNTLED Rangers fans are set to pile the pressure on the under-fire Ibrox board - despite speculation that a date for an AGM has finally been set.

It is understood that what promises to be an explosive AGM will be held at Ibrox on Wednesday, December 18.

But supporters' splinter group The Sons of Struth have vowed to continue to protest at Rangers games until their demands are met.

They want a date for an AGM to be confirmed and they want to know the identities of mystery investors Blue Pitch Holdings and Margarita Holdings.

Sons of Struth demonstrated outside the front door of Ibrox before the Scottish Cup game with Airdrie on Friday night.

And at half-time they held up banners which read "No More Faceless Investors" behind the directors' box in the main stand.

There are more protests planned at the SPFL League One games at Ibrox against Dunfermline tomorrow night, Airdrie on Saturday and Forfar on Saturday week.

Since the group started demonstrating at matches club directors Ian Hart, Bryan Smart and Craig Mather - who was also the club chief executive - have all stood down.

Unrest among the Light Blues fans has intensified after South Africa-based businessman Dave King last week revealed he would not, for the time being, be investing in his boyhood heroes.

SoS organiser Craig Houston said: "Our campaign is now focused on two issues. We want an AGM to be held now and we want to know the identities of the faceless investors.

"We will be demonstrating at every single game, at the game tomorrow and on the two following Saturdays, if those two requests are not granted.

"If the date for an AGM is set and we are told who the faceless investors are then we will have made our point. Then it will be down to the shareholders and we will step back."

Rumours that December 18 has been set as the date for the AGM come after warnings from former Rangers chairman Malcolm Murray.

As reported in later editions of SportTimes yesterday, the city businessman revealed the club could face criminal prosecution and having its share suspended if an AGM was not held before the end of next month.

Murray also stated that Blue Pitch Holdings and Margarita Holdings could lose their voting rights at the AGM if they refuse a legal request to reveal their identities.

The Easdale brothers, James and Sandy, currently have their voting proxies, believed to be around 25%.

Shareholders will finally have the chance to vote on who they want to be appointed Gers directors at the AGM.

Malcolm Murray, Paul Murray, Scott Murdoch and Alex Wilson will all seek election after winning a legal action at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

And shareholder James Easdale and financial director Brian Stockbridge could also be voted off if they fail to secure the backing of the majority of investors.
