STEWART ROBERTSON insists Rangers do not need to sell any of their players as he revealed the Ibrox club are "close to financial stability".

The managing director was speaking at today's AGM and he backed up quotes made by sporting director Ross Wilson last week.

Wilson told the media that new manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst will not be forced into selling stars as he outlined the club's player trading model going forward.

Robertson today said: "We don’t need to sell a player despite what you read in the press. We are close to financial stability."

Robertson's comments come after Wilson said last week: "I think Gio has been very clear in that in terms of our discussions but also we as a club have been really clear in that.

"There is no mandate to the manager that we have to sell players. We have been really, really clear as a club in our communication that we see player trading as something that has to be normal for this club - as it is for nearly ever club in world football.

"We've not been strong in that in the past, that's been clear to see but the investors have continued to back this club all the time.

"We've rejected, as everybody knows, some significant offers for some of our players in the last two windows and we'll do so again unless they are the right offers for the right players at the right time. 

"But if we accept any offers then what we'll definitely be doing is reinvesting back in this squad to keep taking us forward.

"I think when I speak to Douglas Park and John Bennett one of the things that we always say is we've had to invest a lot in this club, or the guys have had to invest a lot in this club to get it back to the club that we all know it has to be and we're on a really good level today.

"But we have been really clear in what our strategy is and what it needs to be going forward but there is no requirement on the manager to have to sell anyone."
