THE Rangers Fans Fighting Fund have revealed plans to provide £450,000 to build a 264-seater stand at Murray Park.

The Fund was set up in 2012 and given backing from a host of Ibrox legends as supporters stepped up to help their club.

A range of ideas have been considered over how best to use the significant sum that remains and the Committee have now put forward a proposal that could see a stand and changing facilities built at the Light Blues’ Auchenhowie base.

Fans will have a chance to see the plans in more detail at a meeting at Ibrox on Monday, February 29 and supporters will have a say in how the money is utilised.

A statement read: “The RFFF Committee, like the majority of supporters, are keen to support the club’s youth department and the creation of this new facility overlooking the main youth pitch would be of great benefit to the Academy and provide a permanent tribute to the fans worldwide who have donated to the Fighting Fund in the past four years.

“We have held informal talks with the club about our proposal and they are fully supportive.

“There is no doubt Rangers is now in the hands of shareholders who genuinely have the best interests of the club at heart so the RFFF Committee believes the time is right to invest our funds.

“The Rangers Fans Fighting Fund was launched by Ibrox legends Walter Smith and Sandy Jardine in 2012 to help safeguard and protect the club's future and assets.

“We now believe we are on the correct path, Rangers is heading in the right direction with good people controlling the club so the Committee believes this project would be an appropriate way to utilise our funds.

“It is important to stress, however, that this money was donated in good faith by supporters and while the Committee agrees this project would be the best way forward it is ultimately down to the fans to decide.

“The RFFF is in no doubt, though, that this is the best way forward and we urge the fanbase to back this idea.”
