Second venue pulls out of hosting toxic Rangers EGM



The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, which had been booked by Rangers to host their upcoming EGM, have cancelled the club’s booking hours after it was announced by the London Stock Exchange.

It was the second London venue chosen by the Ibrox board to pull out of hosting the EGM on March 4th, after the Millennium Gloucester had pulled out earlier in the month.

Grange Hotels cited, the comfort and security of their guests and staff was behind the reason to cancel the booking, a spokesperson said: “There is no question when it comes to the comfort and security of our guests and staff. We do not compromise on this and therefore the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel has declined the opportunity to host the proposed Rangers FC EGM.”

The EGM had been called by Dave King, who is looking to oust the current board in favour of appointing himself, Paul Murray and John Gilligan in their place.

But hours after Rangers had announced their choice of venue to the London Stock Exchange, the club were told to look for a new venue with the hotel announcing this evening that they were ‘declining the opportunity’.

It is now expected that Ibrox will after all host the Rangers EGM with the threat of further venues rejecting the booking as it is now seen as a toxic piece of business.
