Charles Green has told talkSPORT he wants to be the man who takes Rangers into the English league structure.
The Scottish Football Association is set for reform, with two leagues of 12 teams and a third of 18 below them, set to replace the existing four tier system.
That decision could see Green, who has made secret of his desire to take the Glasgow side south of the border, pull the Gers out of Scottish football.
He said: “I would be delighted to be the chief executive of Rangers that took them into the English league [structure]. We are going to pursue it. We’ve sought legal advice.
“It’s my responsibility as chief exec to do what’s right for the shareholders and what’s right for the club. I’ve had enough indications that Scottish football don’t like us and don’t want Rangers, so I look at other options.
“There’s been lots of press and lots of discussions. I have taken legal counsel, because let’s be clear: it is a breach of European competition law to deny Scottish clubs, not just Rangers, the right to play in England. That is against European law. I don’t believe that the authorities would stand back and try to ignore that position. You just try and explain to me why a Welsh club can play in the English league but a Scottish club can’t.
“I don’t believe that even if there was a will, that it would be right for Rangers to go in at the top. There’s no sporting integrity and that’s why we accepted going into the third division in Scotland. This club is proud. We don’t want anyone to grant us any favours or any privileges.
“What I’ve never been happy to do is except the status quo. I’ve always wanted to challenge if I didn’t think something was right."
