It is now a fortnight since Dave King submitted his call to stage a shareholder summit that could see the removal of chairman David Somers, chief executive Derek Llambias and directors Barry Leach and James Easdale.

 

The South Africa-based businessman is seeking election to the board alongside Paul Murray and John Gilligan, but the Gers hierarchy have yet to set a date for the crunch vote.

 

Their only response to King's call came 11 days ago when they stated they were checking that the notice was 'properly constituted' and valid, but they now have just a week left to comply.

 

A deadline of a further 21 days then comes into play, and Sons of Struth chief Craig Houston told SportTimes: "I, like all fans, want this situation resolved as quickly as possible, so the sooner the General Meeting is called the sooner it can be held and, hopefully, the board will be removed.

 

"The majority of Rangers fans want to see change on the board.

 

"The expectation is that they will spin it out for as long as they can and then look to hold off actually holding the General Meeting for as long as possible.

 

"I don't want any compromise because that could wrangle on for years. The outcome the fans want is for this regime to be removed and we can then start rebuilding our club.

 

"If it goes the right way, it should be a line in the sand and we can move forward. If it doesn't I can see more unrest from the fans and more financial difficulties at Rangers."

 

 

As revealed in SportTimes yesterday, a petition from the London RFCSA has attracted huge interest from fans in the aftermath of Mike Ashley's latest Ibrox power grab.

 

The Association will hand the document to Nominated Advisor WH Ireland next week as they urge Paul Shackleton, who previously handled Rangers' Stock Exchange affairs while on the books of Daniel Stewart before the firm lost its licence, to accept the King EGM call.

 

Houston said: "For the London branch to get more than 7,000 fans signing their petition in such a short space of time is great and it shows that Rangers fans are united in their views and opinions.

 

"All we can do now is hope that the Nomad take it on board. Unfortunately, we have past experience and know that might not happen.

 

"Everything seems to be done for the benefit of some shareholders and not the majority of shareholders."
