Douglas Beattie's assertion (M Star December 5) that Rangers FC should simply take Mike Ashley's money and rename Ibrox was curious in three respects.
First of all he cited Arsenal, Manchester City and Bolton, yet forgot that these clubs have new, purpose-built stadia that have never been called anything else.
Second, he downplays the backlash from the Toon Army which forced Newcastle's board to drop the Sports Direct Arena name and reinstate St James's Park.
Finally - inexcusably - Douglas advises Charles Green not to consult the Rangers fans on this, contradicting the club's manager and all-time top goalscorer Ally McCoist.
As the former chairman of the Rangers Supporter's Trust, a socialist and a Morning Star supporter, I am genuinely disappointed to read a columnist urging a club to both take the money and run and ignore the voices of so-called ordinary fans.
Rather than dishing advice at odds with the Star's values and principles, shouldn't Douglas promote the democratisation and collective ownership of football clubs, or be looking at how Rangers was run into the sand by an unaccountable Tory multi-millionaire?
