It sounds impressive and I suppose, in some ways, it is. However, they were given the opportunity to go for 51% and failed miserably.

They raised something like 540k for their 20% holding.

Liable for 20% of the 800k losses then from last season.

The fact is that without Rangers in the top league (loss of TV and sponsorship cash), then their susbequent relegation, this offer would bever have been put to them

If it only cost 540k to buy 20% can we not just use the RFFF to buy 20%.

Then do an Ashley on them :D

We have around 5% of the club if I am correct.

20% of a feeder club doesn't amount to much.

Almost all of Dundee was owned by the fans - but their directors and chief executive pushed through selling new shares tot he Yanks which diluted them.

The lesson to be learned? The struggle is eternal. Don;t take your eye off the ball.

BuyRangers and Rangers First have about 5% of the Club.

I think if you add in the independent shareholders it gets up around the 10-12% figure. Only going from the figures that were being discussed in March this year before the EGM right enough. Seems reasonably accurate to me.

If you factor in guys like King, Murray, Gilligan and the 3 bears etc who are also fans then you can argue that fans own over 50%
