Rangers fans have responded on social media after the Gers announced a share offering.

The official announcement was delivered via the club’s social media channels on Tuesday morning, with pre-registration now open.

Ordinary shares are on offer and the minimum investment is £500. The maximum investment per individual is £100,000, with an overall target of £6.75m

In a video accompanying the announcement, several key figures at the club, including deputy chairman John Bennett, managing director Stewart Robertson, sporting director Ross Wilson and manager Steven Gerrard spoke about the position the club is currently in, the ambitions for the future and the benefits of fan investment.

“Rangers is part of my DNA, it’s part of my family and for me, I’ve cemented that by owning equity,” says Bennett [Rangers FC Twitter]. “I am a part-owner of the football club.”


“It’s a wonderful opportunity to be involved in a football club that’s heading in a positive direction, that has got a solid plan with a lot of fantastic people behind it,” adds Wilson.

“This institution has been here for 150 years,” says Robertson. “It has to be put in the best possible position it can be for the next 150 years. And by widening the ownership to a wider base of shareholders, we feel it helps give the club a much better chance of going forward.”

Predictably, plenty of Celtic supporters were quick to pounce on the announcement, suggesting that it had been prompted by a desperate need for a cash injection.

However, although questions remain for some at this juncture, plenty of Bears responded positively to the opportunity, with some suggesting they will get involved as soon as possible.

Here’s a selection of reactions from Rangers fans:
