Rangers seeks new venue for shareholder meeting as London hotel pulls out over "disruption"Comments Off on Rangers seeks new venue for shareholder meeting as London hotel pulls out over "disruption"
Rangers said in a statement that the the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington had taken advice and concluded that the meeting “cannot be managed without significant disruption to guests and neighbours”.
The statement continued: “The hotel management felt it necessary to take this position after receiving numerous complaints and false information from individuals purporting to be shareholders.
“An alternative venue is currently being sought in the London area and will be announced as soon as possible.”
The extraordinary general meeting was scheduled for March 4 after Rangers agreed to accept a loan from Newcastle United and Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley.
It is expected to be a lively affair, with shareholders and fans set to protest over the running of the club.
There had already been some complaints about the meeting, however, with some fans unhappy that it is being held in London, the opposite end of the country to Rangers base in Glasgow.
