The manager sat down with Somers hours before Saturday's game and revealed his optimism about the club's prospects since the boardroom reshuffle.
He told Rangers.co.uk: "Our meeting very well. I spoke to David last night on the phone after missing him on Thursday, when I left him a message then he left one for me.
"We had a good cup of tea and a great initial chat. I'm very encouraged and I'm hopefully looking forward to a good working relationship."
Somers will head up the search to recruit a new chief executive at Ibrox.
