Duff & Phelps, the administrators of Rangers Football Club, have issued a statement on the future of the club:

We have had a number of discussions with the interested parties today and have stressed the benefits to them of engaging openly with the Club’s fanbase.

We can now see light at the end of the tunnel whereby the Club can exit from administration and focus upon success on the pitch.

While we cannot be precise on timescale, exit from administration does look achievable by the end of the season.

Rangers Administrator Paul Clark : "The agreement on very substantial wage reductions and voluntary departures from the club represents a major sacrifice by the Rangers players.

"There are a small number of matters still to be dealt with over the weekend but we do not believe these will be insurmountable in the completion of an agreement.

"This has been a difficult week for everyone at the club and we are pleased that we can now move forward and focus on the next steps in the recovery process."
