Douglas Park quits Rangers

Rangers have tonight confirmed that Douglas Park, non-executive director of Rangers International Football Club PLC has stepped down from his position on the board to be replaced by his son Graeme.

Park, whose coach business was recently reinstalled as the official partner of Rangers’ transport, has as yet not given any specific reason for his resignation, citing ‘other commitments’ as cause that he cannot devote the due attention to the role, and has as such been replaced by his son on board the RIFC and The Board.

In a statement tonight the BMW magnate said:

"I would like to put on record that although I held the position as Director for only a short period of time it has been an honour and a privilege to serve the Club and I will always be proud of the part I played in bringing this great institution back into the hands of those who have its best interests at heart. I am confident that going forward the Club is in good hands and will offer all my support to the Board in pursuing what is best for the Club. Rangers is hugely important to me and my family and I am delighted that Graeme is joining the Board."

Park was a highly-respected member of the board and of the business world, so his departure is something of a blow, but hopefully his son will replace him adequately.
