Rangers Supporters Press Ahead With Season Ticket Trust Fund To Help Dave King
Scottish League 1 side Rangers fans' chiefs on Tuesday night "promised to press ahead with plans to set up a season ticket fighting fund to help Dave King bring down the current regime," according to Keith Jackson of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. Umbrella group The Union of Fans released its latest statement Tuesday, following on from King’s state of the nation address which was made public on Monday night. In the South Africa-based businessman’s speech "he accused the Ibrox board of treating hedge fund firm Laxey Partners better than their own supporters." In response, supporters' leaders "reluctantly agreed to back off while also declaring their intention to carry on with their original proposals to open a bank account into which fellow fans can deposit next season’s ticket cash -- rather than hand that money over to the club’s under-fire hierarchy" (DAILY RECORD, 3/19).
