Charles Green has admitted he plans to spend less than a year at Rangers.
Green is heading a consortium in place to buy the Ibrox club and will find out whether his offer to creditors is sufficient on Thursday.
Rangers director Dave King has accused Green of lacking the funding to take the club forward beyond then and predicted he would not last a season in charge.
Green denied the first accusation but admits he sees turning round Rangers as a relatively short-term task.
The former Sheffield United chief executive told the Daily Record: "Dave King said he didn't think I'd still be here in a year's time and do you know what? He's right.
"It isn't my intention to be here longer than that.
"If nothing much is added to what I can see on the table at the moment I believe I can get over all the hurdles in a year.
"I'd be very disappointed if I am not out of the club quickly."
Green revealed the personal benefits he anticipates from turning around the club.
"I'll be getting £2million in shares, not cash," he said.
Green's group have pledged £8.5million for creditors, the vast majority of which is due to be repaid with interest from the club by 2020.
Rangers currently owe Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs more than £21million and that figure could more than quadruple depending on the outcome of a tax tribunal.
Green has urged fans to exert political pressure to ensure the tax authority accepts the reduced payments on offer.
"Fans should be urging their politicians to apply some pressure so that the CVA is accepted," he said.
Green also insisted the funding from his investors, only two of whom have been named, was in place and he would not be able to use season-ticket money to fund his deal.
"The first-phase funding, £10million, is all there," he said.
"Yes, I will raise £20million more and I say that well aware of just how difficult it is to raise money these days."
