Around 600 disgruntled Rangers fans made their feelings known about the board as they protested outside Ibrox before and after their abandoned game with Hearts.

The game was called off half way through the first half as the referee deemed the pitch unsafe for the players as heavy snow fell before kick off.

The snow and freezing conditions didn’t deter the fans from voicing their anger towards the board who have been offered a £10 million loan from Mike Ashley secured against Ibrox and Murray Park.

Rangers currently can’t pay their wages for January and the loan from Ashley comes as a relief to the club in turmoil.

The Newcastle United owner, who has an 8.92% share in the club had his attempts to purchase a bigger stake in the club turned down by the SFA as the current ruling means an owner can’t own both an English and Scottish club.

Chants of ‘Sack the board’ were sang as the fans made their feelings perfectly clear as they have no trust in the current board.

Rangers Trust released a statement putting more pressure on the board as they revealed they were taking legal advice over the security of Ibrox from loans.

The statement read, ‘We believe the board may be acting illegally on two fronts and we will be working with any other shareholder who wishes to challenge this. If necessary we will instigate legal action against the directors both collectively and individually.’

The statement also asked the board to clarify their position on the matter and to confirm they will not be accepting the loan from Ashley.
