Rangers boardroom changes continue

Donald McIntyre has lost his position as company secretary at Rangers as new owner Craig Whyte continues to overhaul the Ibrox boardroom.

Finance director McIntyre remains suspended along with the chief executive Martin Bain pending the outcome of an internal inquiry.

Phil Betts' position as a new director has been confirmed, while Gary Withey replaces McIntyre as company secretary.

Former Rangers chairman John McClelland is to remain on the board.

After the departure on Tuesday of chairman Alastair Johnston and director Paul Murray there were suggestions that McClelland would also leave.

However, a Rangers spokesman confirmed to BBC Scotland that McClelland had been asked to stay on and had been delighted to accept the offer.

McClelland has been a board member at Ibrox since 2000 and was chairman between 2002 and 2004.

Former Rangers captain and manager John Greig is also staying in the boardroom.

The spokesman also confirmed that Whyte will meet with manager Ally McCoist in the next few days to discuss his spending requirements for next season.
