Former Rangers manager Walter Smith has joined the new regime at Ibrox by accepting a place on the board.
Rangers announced on Sunday night that Smith and retired Glasgow businessman Ian Hart had accepted the role of non-executive directors.
The move is a huge coup for chief executive Charles Green, who has been trying to bring Smith on board since the former Scotland manager launched a takeover bid hours after Green's Sevco Scotland company initially took control at Ibrox in June.
Smith, who managed Rangers to 10 league titles in two spells, described his appointment as a "great privilege". In a statement issued by the club, he said: "Serious constructive efforts are being made to rebuild Rangers after a very difficult period in the club's history and if I can play a part helping that process, I am willing to do so.
"Apart from being a former manager of the club, I am first and foremost a supporter and am no different from the many thousands of other Rangers fans who have shown they're willing to do what they can to ensure Rangers rises again.
"I must make it clear, however, that I will not be playing any role in the day-to-day running of the club or the team. The role I will fulfil is to bring my experience of Rangers and football in general to the board table and that is what I will do.
"The people who purchased the club have shown over the last few months they are serious in their intentions to rebuild Rangers and I am happy, as many other fans have done, to lend my support."
Hart is another who has been won round by Green. The businessman was initially named by Sevco as one of their investors on the day they bought the assets of the soon-to-be-liquidated Rangers, but he soon issued a denial.
Hart said then that his investment had been historical with money "lying about in the youth development department" and aligned himself with Smith's consortium. On Sunday night, he said: "The board felt there was a need to bring in people with background and experience in the west of Scotland and I am happy to play my part.
"I have been a supporter of the club and youth development programme, in particular, for a very long time and I think this is an area that will become increasingly important to all clubs in years to come."
