i keep reading posts criticising King etc but does nobody realise that until Ashley has been despatched to the waste bin, nothing great will happen. He is holding us to ransom and until THAT ransom is paid off in full, he will continue to destroy our club. The priority must be to pay this guy of NOW and then and only then, we can see some light at the end of a very dark tunnel, so let's just remember its not just a football team that King and Co are running, it's a business that is still in intensive care and has a long struggle ahead until we take care of the Ashley problem

well said wee bill I for one have a brain in between these ears but can't for the life of me understand the rangers fans that expect king and co to put up their own money when we can't make a profit while the fat rat holds all the cards

The Three Bears and the Two Far East Rangers fans have given significant funds to the Club by way of Soft Loans. King on the other hand has been full of bull and is potentially only making matters worse in his personal battle with Ashley.
The Ashley scenario is a perfect excuse for King not to part with any cash and for me he is just another David Murray. Glad to have everyone else funds invested in the club other than his own!
I am not a fan of Ashley, far from it but that doesn't mean that I need to be a fan of King!

Pay him how much off now, the full value of dodgy deals agreed by members of the old board who may have had conflict of interest that are subject of litigation.

Anyone who reads my posts will know I'm a big fan of our board, but I would not give Ashley a pay off, that has took a small fortune from us, and will keep taking off us, our only hope is we beat him in court this case is up very soon, as for Dave King I don't know if he will pump major funds into the club, all I know is major funds will not be invested while Ashley still has a grip on Rangers, so bottom line is we must beat Ashley in court by proving the contracts he got from the old board were not at market value and the old board did not act in rangers best interests as the only person who benefited from them was themselves and Ashley, fingers crossed the judge will see this. but as I said major funds will not be invested while Ashley and co are still there taking money out the club.

Good post Delboy and let's hope that the Court Case goes in our favour. As for King I remain sceptical that King will invest any significant amount in to the Club but equally I believe that there could be other serious players interested should King be unable or unwilling to make the Investment necessary to get the club back to the top.
Given the size of our support worldwide there are significant opportunities if we have the right people in charge both on and off the Park!

Agreed tom, I'm also sceptical regarding King, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of doubt until Ashley is removed, then I, ll judge him on what investment he makes, but I'm still glad he's in power because I would hate to think were we would be if they never removed Ashley and co. but your right there is investors there but money won't be put into the club until Ashley and co are gone for good. god knows how long that will be though.

Agree Dellboy, we need to get Ashley out first before judging King. King and the current Board have provided much needed stability and support during a very difficult period in our history.
