This morning has greeted us with a statement from Mr Dave King. I am(perhaps) overly critical of the Rangers board of old.
Personally, and I do little to hide this, I would like a full and frank investigation into ALL of the following with regard to their involvement in the clubs affairs throughout the Murray and Whyte era’s: Dave King, David Murray, Paul Murray, Hugh Adams, Martin Bain, Craig Whyte, Alastair Johnstone, Campbell Ogilvie, John McClleland, Mike McGill, Gary Withey, Andrew Ellis and Phil Betts.
In recent times we have seen the ‘old’ guard emerging from the woodwork to tell us exactly how they feel about Craig Whyte, his takeover etc.
Much of it stinks!
It doesn’t stink because I am a great believer in Craig Whyte – far from, but more because I believe that all of those mentioned above have been complicit in either recent or historic times of hiding information that they were privy to as members of the board.
I actually feel that some of them are trying to stay ahead of the game – to e-quit themselves of any public liability by suddenly becoming ‘tell tales’. The most recent, but by no means the only one has been Hugh Adams. Exactly where were you Sir, all of them years ago, when this practice was going on? It is all very good and well devulging your information now that the shit has hit the fan – but exactly where were you prior to this when things were going “well…”??
It is now the turn of Dave King. The man himself has been steeped in controversy in recent times over his own tax dealings in South Africa. Nevertheless the man is one of great wealth and one of stature in the field of business. So what did he have to say?
