Derek Llambias comes out of hiding to stir it at Rangers

5 years ago

The last thing Rangers fans needed was Derek Llambias adding his voice to the latest mess at Ibrox.

Having kept a low profile in recent times, the former Newcastle United and Rangers Chief Executive has chosen this new crisis at the Glasgow club to stoke things up further.

Rangers are currently without a manager and are interviewing various candidates this week in London, as they seek to appoint a new Manager/Head Coach and a Director of Football.

With financial pressures seemingly as bad as ever, Derek Llambias appeared on Sky Sports to challenge Dave King as to ‘Where is the money’ to turn the club around.

Rangers fans see their club 30 points behind Celtic and Llambias is taking great pleasure in once again posing questions about the finances of King and his associates.

They kicked Derek Llambias  and Barry Leach out of the club when taking control but the influence of Mike Ashley has continued to weaken Rangers still further, due to the ongoing nature of the various retail and other agreements that were signed off before the current regime won control.

Dave King insisted this month that £18m had been put into the club since the takeover but refused to reveal how much of that figure, if any, has came from him.

Derek Llambias speaking  to Sky Sports:

 “Last time I spoke to you guys when we were voted off I asked ‘where was the money? where was the cash?’

“There was no money, there was no nomad, there’s no listing and we’re two years on and it’s exactly the same. Where is the money?

“To be honest with you, the club has got great history, wonderful traditions and they just need somebody with a lot of money behind it who are going to produce the goods.”
