Chairman Dave King says Rangers will resist a court application by former chief executive Charles Green to make the club pay his legal costs after he was charged with involvement in serious organised crime.
Green was among seven men served indictments by Scotland's Prosecution Service earlier this month.
The indictments include charges of fraud, conspiracy to defraud and also attempting to pervert the course of justice.
He was bailed after appearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court on September 2 in connection with the 'alleged fraudulent acquisition' of the club three years ago.
In a statement released on the Rangers website, King said: "Charles Green approached the club prior to his arrest and demanded that we pay his legal costs in respect of his co-operation with Police Scotland in its criminal investigation into his time as an officer of the club.
"I advised him that we would not do so. He was subsequently arrested and has now approached the Court to compel the club to pay the legal costs of his defence to the criminal charges. This application will be strongly resisted."
Green headed a consortium which took control at Ibrox in June 2012, four months after the club had been placed in administration. He left his role as chief executive the following April.
