Charles Green has admitted he plans to spend less than a year at Rangers.
Green is heading a consortium in place to buy the Ibrox club and will find out whether his offer to creditors is sufficient on Thursday.
Rangers director Dave King has accused Green of lacking the funding to take the club forward beyond then and predicted he would not last a season in charge.
Green denied the first accusation but admits he sees turning round Rangers as a relatively short-term task.
The former Sheffield United chief executive told the Daily Record: "Dave King said he didn't think I'd still be here in a year's time and do you know what? He's right.
"It isn't my intention to be here longer than that.
"If nothing much is added to what I can see on the table at the moment I believe I can get over all the hurdles in a year.
"I'd be very disappointed if I am not out of the club quickly."
Green revealed the personal benefits he anticipates from turning around the club.
"I'll be getting £2million in shares, not cash," he said.
