Chairman Speaks Off Field

DAVE KING spoke to RangersTV after the Gers Chairman watched his side’s first Premiership game of the season.

The Light Blues Chairman unfurled last season’s Championship league flag ahead of kick off, before seeing the team draw 1-1 with Hamilton.

After full time he covered a range of topics with RangersTV including matters on the pitch and off it.

Speaking specifically on commercial matters, he said: “Off the pitch this season there is a lot less to do than there was last season, I think there is still some tidying up with some of the commercial issues, I think all of it has been dealt with in public.

“I think the club is in far more control of the situation to where we were even three months ago so I am quite confident within a relatively short period of time we will also have the commercial picture fully under control.

“That is probably the last aspect of the whole regime that is perhaps causing us complications going forward with a clean slate.

“If we can deal with that over the next couple of months then at least we can finally put that one to bed.

“I would say we will have a resolution between weeks and months but I certainly don’t see us sitting here this time next year having a similar conversation.”

The club released a statement on Friday afternoon following the release of Sheriff Principal Edward Bowen’s report into the Scottish Cup Final.

Speaking on the Cup final, King said: “I think the club is very disappointed and with the report we have made an additional statement already where we have said there are some inaccuracies and inconsistences.

“I think from the club’s point of view what is absolutely essential for us is that there is recognition as to actually what happened on the day.

“I think those who contributed to the chaos must recognise that and hand their hands up, if we don’t get that they we won’t get a resolution to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

“We are absolutely determined there should be recognition as to what actually happened and a way forward to make sure it doesn’t happen again and we feel at this stage this report certainly doesn’t achieve that.”
