Ian Durrant has called for Rangers shareholder Dave King to be given a statue outside Ibrox for what he has done for the club in recent years.

The former Chairman of the Bears has been integral in this rebuild at Auchenhowie and has been critical to the success since arriving in 2015.

King brought Steven Gerrard to the club and Durrant believes that is another reason behind all of this success for the Light Blues.


Speaking with Richard Gough on the Blues Brothers Podcast on Monday evening, Durrant made the huge suggestion for outside Ibrox.

“I knew it would be emotional with coming back into the club,” he said.

“You can see you’ve come in with a very important man, I think Mr King should get a statue put up for what he has done for the club, and also now the introduction of Steven Gerrard.”


Hard to disagree.

King has done so much positive for the club since arriving and has invested and lost money trying to bring the Bears back to the top.

After coming back in 2015, the arrival of Gerrard was on the back of a glowing report from Sir Kenny Dalglish, and the rest you would say is history.

With his job somewhat done, for now, King has also agreed to sell his shares to Club 1872, if they can raise £13million to buy him out.

That would get the fans at the heart of the club, making the big decisions, something that King clearly believes is the right step forward.

It is hard to think of someone who has had a bigger role in this success, would a statue surprise anyone? We don’t think so.
