Rangers First, the fan ownership group which is the eighth largest shareholder in the Ibrox club with a stake of just over 3.5 per cent, last night revealed its members had voted overwhelmingly in favour of all 11 resolutions for the forthcoming AGM.

In a poll of Rangers First members, around 99 per cent voted in favour of all of the resolutions which have been put forward for the general meeting which will be held at the Clyde Auditorium this Friday.

The voting rights of the 2,865,487 shares currently held by the community interest company will now be used to vote accordingly later this week.

Rangers First Director Ricki Neill stated the group, which was only launched last year, was keen to support the new board, which seized power at an EGM in March, in their efforts to rebuild Rangers.

He said: “The results once more demonstrate that Rangers First contributors will actively back the current board or indeed anyone who puts the interests of Rangers Football Club first.

"Rangers First will be delighted to work together with the club in any way we can throughout this rebuilding process.

"We would like to say a big thank you to all the support we have had from Rangers fans since our launch last year.

"They have really got behind the concept of fan ownership and Rangers First has managed to become the 8th largest shareholder in the club in a relatively short space of time. We fully plan to increase this shareholding even further in 2016 and beyond.

"Rangers Fans worldwide do not deserve to go through what we’ve experienced in the past few years.

"I would encourage all Rangers Fans worldwide to join Rangers First and help ensure that the dark days never again again return"

If passed, the resolutions will allow some of the current loans to the club from The Three Bears consortium - George Letham, Douglas Park and George Taylor - and Dave King to be converted in to shares.

They will also prohibit anyone with a stake in, or influence at, another football club from having a say in the affairs if Rangers in the future.

However, those resolutions require 75 per cent of the shareholders to back them before they are approved.
