Reds chief Rick Parry said: “It wouldn’t surprise me if George took himself to The Albert for a drink with the fans.
“That’s the kind of thing he’s done in Montreal. He will speak to the fans. He’s a people person with a thirst for knowledge and he’s a very good listener.
“The reason George and Tom have kept away from games so far is out of respect for the shareholders.
“They don’t want to appear presumptuous because they recognise it’s big decision being taken and shareholders should be given the time and space to make it.”
