Breaking News – Derek Llambias appointed at Rangers
Breaking news just revealed by Sky Sports, is that Derek Llambias has been appointed by Rangers, as part of the deal that saw Mike Ashley provide a £2m emergency loan to the Glasgow club.
However, the title he has been officially given is ‘Consultant’ rather than Chief Executive, no doubt that will mean everybody at Rangers will have to ‘consult’ Derek Llambias before they dare do anything that might displease his boss.
Arriving at Glasgow Airport on Monday night, the former Newcastle United Chief Executive Office had been met by a posse of reporters.
Playing it for laughs, Llambias claimed that he was ‘just one of many applicants’ but did say that Mike Ashley has got ‘a great track record’.
“Mike Ashley has got a great track record but I can’t give you any comment. I’d love to but I can’t.
“I’ve been invited up here to have discussions with the board and I’m just one of many applicants.
“I’m just looking forward to meeting the Rangers board at some point”
