Mr Ritchie, who oversaw the passage of the four motions put to shareholders, also announced his intention to stand down from the board after more than 20 years.

The former chairman however will remain on the board, unelected, until the end of his tenure representing the Championship on the SPFL board which requires a director's position at a club.
