Dave King admits he's out of touch with Rangers


Dave King has curiously conceded that he has not kept up to speed on Rangers’ fortunes on the pitch, and indeed had not watched Hibernian at all.

Speaking before the match, Rangers’ new chief suggested that it was hard to watch Rangers at all in South Africa, and therefore implied he was considerably out of touch with how the team has been performing on the pitch, aside from the actual results.

King described manager Stuart McCall’s performance as ‘good’ but how much that is worth given he has only watched two or three matches (which he attended) since winning the EGM and only one of them was managed by Stuart McCall (last night’s win) is left open for debate.

He also suggested Rangers can still work with Sports Direct, but that a meeting with its boss Mike Ashley is unnecessary and only reconnaissance work with ‘his people’ is actually needed.

It seems King’s strength is business and not football, and Rangers fans will hope he invests the promised £10M he previously stated and that his colleagues pump in their share, something he also alluded to on March 6th.

  1. Is it £10M, £20 or £30M and what does that actually sort, not the balance sheet, not the team or even youth development going by a score tonight, I fear we are taking quite a few steps back with King. J

  2. We need to be patient with new board. Lots to sort out. But rest assured the Whyte, Green, Ashley, McCoist era of greed and self-interest is over.
