While Rangers fans might be focused on what is going in the dugout at Ibrox this summer, they might also want to have a look at what is happening in the boardroom – for it could have a huge impact on their future.
After a distinctly average season, in which there has been little sign of catching up to runaway leaders and fierce rivals Celtic, there need to be significant changes if they want to stand any chance of replicating their past glories in the Old Firm rivalry.
Steven Gerrard’s seemingly imminent arrival at Ibrox is an exciting, but risk filled, proposition, but it seems as though he is already showing his worth to the Light Blues even before he has put pen to paper.
The Scottish Sun claim on their website that after a shakeup in the boardroom, which saw Paul Murray and Barry Scott leave their roles, the Gers are ready to bring in new investors – and their money is exactly what is needed to close the gap at the top of the table.
The Hoops have dominated thanks to the finances they get from their European exploits, putting themselves firmly ahead of the rest of the chasing pack, and with no one else raking in the same cash it makes it very much a one horse race.
Gerrard’s arrival at Rangers seems to have resulted in a number of potential investors wanting to jump on the bandwagon and give the Liverpool legend their backing – a massive step towards catching those over at Parkhead.
Whether the former midfielder is the right manager for the Gers remains to be seen, but by bringing in investors he is already proving his worth even before he has signed up.
