Pundit shares Rangers bust up claim amid Dave King comments today
Tam McManus has suggested “something” has gone on between Douglas Park and Dave King after the former Rangers chairman’s latest comments.
King has revealed (Daily Record, 23 November) he won’t be voting for Park at the upcoming AGM on 6 December with boardroom changes potentially on the cards.
McManus feels the pair are entitled to voice their opinions but believes they clearly don’t get on with each other at present, with King slowly getting out.
“I think when you’ve got that many shares and you have a big interest in the club you’re entitled to voice your opinion,” said McManus (PLZ Football Show, 8:28, 23 November).
“There’s something obviously gone on there between him and Douglas Park, with the pair not getting on with each other. Douglas Park has obviously put money in, but the most important thing is the supporters and they need to know what’s happening.
“I didn’t think they backed Giovanni van Bronckhorst with cash, and I do think there’s something not quite right at Rangers when it comes to boardroom level.”
The upcoming AGM promises to be an intriguing event for everyone associated with the Gers. The board should start preparing for their date with destiny on the 6 December.
They also have the small task of trying to hire a new manager to take the club back in the right direction. It would be easy for the board to rush into making an appointment ahead of the AGM, however, it will be crucial to land the right man after Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s tenure at Ibrox.
Backing the new manager in January is a must for Rangers, with their summer business leaving a lot to be desired. We all know van Bronckhorst had to depart, but he certainly wasn’t helped by the board in the summer.
After the run to the Europa League final, there should have been more investment in the squad to take the Gers to the next level.
The next months could be some of the biggest in recent history for Rangers.
