ST MIRREN fans have been urged to turn out in numbers at two meetings being held this week to discuss the Rangers newco saga.
Buddies chairman Stewart Gilmour has called a shareholders meeting at St Mirren Park tonight, starting at 7pm, with another gathering to take place at the same time tomorrow evening, when season ticket holders and other fans can go along.
Gilmour intends to give supporters an update on the discussions Saints have been involved in as Scottish football tries to fight its way through the mess created by the Ibrox club’s liquidation crisis.
Now leaders of the 10000Hours group which is bidding to buy Saints have urged fans to turn up after they were accused of backing plans that would see Rangers parachuted into the First Division, rather than the Third Division, which is the preferred option for many fans.
A spokesperson said: “We can confirm that no-one in the 10000hours team had seen the document or proposal reported by the media regarding the SFL document.
“We welcome the board’s decision to openly discuss the situation with both season ticket holders and shareholders and we thank all our members for their input to the recent poll which has undoubtedly had a bearing on this decision. We would encourage as many people as are able to take up the offer of attending a club meeting with the board.”
