Rangers forced to deny new admin rumours

East Fife 0 Rangers 1: Rangers were forced to rejected internet rumours that the club will enter administration for a second time on Wednesday on another day of Ibrox intrigue.

A clubs statement said: "There is absolutely no truth in these claims which appear to come from agenda-driven bloggers who are out to damage the club.

"There is no chance of administration while there is no board meeting tomorrow. This is all completely false."

Earlier, supporters leaders demanded the Ibrox board come clean on whether controversial former chief executive Charles Green is still involved with the club.

The Union of Fans – a coalition group representing six supporter bodies – released a statement demanding answers about what happened to the Yorkshire businessman's 7.68 per cent stake in the club after he called a halt to his second stint with the club as a paid consultant last August.

It comes after former director Dave King spoke out on Saturday about his fears that it was "quite possible that Charles Green is still de facto controlling the club".

The uncertainty seemed to be translated onto the pitch in a lacklustre win at East Fife as a last minute penalty from Lee McCulloch secured victory.

Northern Ireland's Andrew Little admitted: "We were off the pace and there wasn't much life about us."
