Green completed his £5.5million newco acquisition after his Company Voluntary Arrangement was formally rejected.
The former Sheffield United chief executive stressed he wanted Ally McCoist to stay following morning reports that the manager was on the verge of quitting after apparently discovering that Green planned to replace him.
