Rangers club insider Four Lads Had a Dream have urged supporters to “ignore the narrative” that the Ibrox side face potentially disastrous financial consequences amid the coronavirus outbreak.

With the domestic league season shutdown, football clubs across the country face many financial challenges with the likes of Aberdeen and Hearts outspoken on this already.

After Dave King’s comments about reported investment being halted amid the shutdown spawned much debate in the media, Four Lads have assured supporters that financially Rangers are “fine”.

In the comments, Four Lads also reveals that season ticket renewals will be launched in the coming weeks whilst the club plans to create a new membership scheme.

The reputable and popular Rangers influencer makes these comments shortly after clashing with BBC chief sportswriter Tom English over the King comments.

Four Lads referenced official comment from Rangers regarding the financial situation in a retort to English questioning the short-term financial security of the football club.

Outspoken pundit Michael Stewart also courted controversy by discussing Rangers’ finances on BBC Sportsound over the weekend.

Predictably, these statements came with more than a touch of doomsday with plenty of ill-informed financial scaremongering.

Rangers noted that they needed a further £10m investment in their annual accounts released at the tail end of last year.

The club themselves appeared to quell fears over this shortfall by confirming that “the funding plan announced at the recent AGM is well advanced, with significant investment already received and further commitments in place” [Rangers].
