Green: Some decisions driven by bigotry

Published Add your comment

Rangers chief executive Charles Green has claimed "bigotry" was one of the reasons behind his club being denied a place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

Green's Sevco consortium purchased the assets and business of Rangers when the club were consigned to liquidation over the summer. SPL clubs then voted against the newco being admitted to Scottish football's top-flight, before Scottish Football League sides voted in favour of the Glasgow giants playing in the Irn-Bru Third Division, rather than Division One.

Green told BBC Scotland: "Some of it has been driven by bigotry, some of it's been driven by jealousy and some of it's been driven by all the wrong motives."
