  6. RANGERS last night quashed a long-running revolt when they agreed to appoint two new directors. Former Ibrox bigwig Paul Murray and top accountant Frank Blin were admitted to the board following weeks of bitter wrangling. The move ended calls by Murray and tycoon Jim McColl for a shareholders’ vote to axe chief executive Craig Mather, finance chief Brian Stockbridge and Bryan Smart from the current regime. The club confirmed the demands have been withdrawn — on condition that an AGM is held by October 31. A statement added: “All of the current directors remain in office and we are not appointing any additional directors save those announced. “We continue to actively seek to appoint a new chairman.” A deal had to be thrashed out by today’s deadline otherwise the club would have been forced to convene an EGM to settle the dispute. But one angry shareholder accused former director Murray and Blin of “wreaking mayhem” during the revolt. He said: “There is disgust within the club about what they have done. “Never once in the past month have they come up with any plans or strategies. They cost the club time and money and put the fans and players through further turmoil. “With friends like that who needs enemies?” Ibrox legend and ex- manager Walter Smith resigned as chairman of the League One club in August following the controversial return of former chief exec Charles Green as a consultant. All current directors must resign and put themselves forward for re-election at the AGM.
  7. So is phil Cartmell getting sacked or as suggested here in the telegraph just stepping down ? By Roddy Forsyth 7:00AM BST 22 Apr 2013 2 Comments Phil Cartmell, the former CEO of security and defence business, Vega Group, is to quit soon to attend to pressing matters concerning his business interests in Singapore, although it is understood that no date has yet been set for his exit. Cartmell bought 25,800 shares at 76.5p when the club floated on the AIM market on December 19. The shares closed at 61p on Friday – a rise of 2p on the day – after the announcement that Charles Green would step down as chief executive, following a series of damaging developments. Meanwhile, one of Cartmell’s fellow plc board members, Craig Mather, will fill Rangers' vacant chief executive role on an interim basis, while the club begins its search for a permanent successor to Charles Green, who quit last week. The agreement to put Mather in place at this juncture represents a victory for chairman Malcolm Murray, after the Telegraph disclosed that the former chief executive, Martin Bain, had support for a return to Ibrox in the same capacity. Murray is believed to feel that Bain is tainted by his association with the tenure of Sir David Murray, who sold the club to Craig Whyte nine months before the new owner’s financial manoeuvrings tipped Rangers into insolvency. Bain, a member of the club’s independent scrutiny group at the time, in fact opposed the sale and was ejected from his position once Whyte took over. It is also understood that Bain had the support of Walter Smith, who values his intimate knowledge of the labyrinthine politics of football in Scotland and the fact that he was in the habit of sitting down with Peter Lawwell – the Celtic CEO, who is widely regarded as the most significant force in the Scottish game – for monthly meetings with the status of an equal.
