Former club chairman Malcolm Murray was in Belfast on Monday evening to drum up support from the Rangers fanbase in Northern Ireland.
He is part of a consortium along with Paul Murray bidding for control of the Ibrox outfit at the club's AGM later this month.
Speaking about the support of local people, Mr Murray said: "It's vital. It's a cornerstone and it always will be.
"I go to most games and we always hate it when we get a replay mid-week or a league game postponed to mid-week because these boys can't make it.
"So you see big sections empty and Ibrox and when it's not full isn't the same at all."
