The news today from Ibrox is that the eleven year old club’s CEO Stewart Robertson has decided to do walking away and will leave his position at the 2012 formed football club at the end of July. Robertson is apparently off to explore new opportunities (cough).
Robertson will be replaced by James Bisgrove who steps up from his Commercial and Marketing role to on the hottest seat in Scottish football. In eight years Robertson kept the lights on while his charges won just two major honours, the League in the farcical Covid season and the Scottish Cup last year.
The new Chairman of theRangers (Douglas Park walked away last week) John Bennett, had this to say about today’s news: “In thanking Stewart for his tireless work and commitment to the club over the past eight years, the Board and I wish him every success in his new project.
“We look forward to welcoming him back to Ibrox as a supporter of his boyhood club (that was a different club, John, as you well know).
“The Board is delighted to appoint James as the new CEO of (the)Rangers. Having transformed the club’s commercial operations (he was the guy who signed the Syndey Super Cup deal), James has demonstrated outstanding credentials in the key areas of commercial delivery, talent development, and leadership.
“He is ideally positioned to drive the step change in energy and restructuring that is now underway.”
Ross Wilson also left the Ibrox club, leaving to join Nottingham Forest, with their supporters now already asking if the English Premier League has made a huge mistake…
Michael Beale is currently the manager of theRangers and will have a fourth attempt to beat Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden on Sunday. Another defeat will start to turn attention to the former QPR boss regarding the next one to do the walking away….
£850k Stewart Robertson steps down in the summer, and James Bisgrove was appointed CEO. JB agrees with New South Wales government for Rangers to attend the Ange tour. They reneged on the signed deal. NSW is suing the newco over £3.25m*
