Rangers chief executive Craig Mather has stepped down in order to try to restore calm to the club

Mather said he was departing in order to try to restore calm to the club, two days after former oldco director Paul Murray won a courtroom victory to force a postponement of next week's schedule annual general meeting in a dispute over a possible election to determine whether he and his allies should join the board.

"The interests of the club are of paramount importance and I believe these are best served by me leaving the club," Mather said on the club's official website.
