Former Scottish League 1 Rangers Chair Walter Smith Says Board Should Heed Criticism
Former Scottish League 1 Rangers Chair Walter Smith on Tuesday "admitted he’s never seen a Rangers board take as much stick as the current regime is suffering," according to Hugh Keevins of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. Smith has watched an "array of banners crop up at games demanding the removal of the board" and branding CEO Craig Mather and his colleagues as "Spivs" and "Liars." Smith warned the "under-siege Ibrox rulers to take heed of the fans' fury." Smith: "We’ve seen the banners at games. If you’re a manager you expect fans to show discontent in that way. But it’s the first time I can recall the board taking criticism like that, which has to be an indication of something." Smith also "declared his support" for the idea of former Rangers Dir Dave King returning -- "but only if the former director came in as Rangers owner and not as a member of the current board" (DAILY RECORD, 10/9).
