King summoned by Rangers

RANGERS chairman David Somers has urged Dave King to meet the Ibrox board after the South Africa-based businessman called on fans to withhold season ticket money.

The former ­director has gone public with questions on how the club is being run, including whether ex-chief executive Charles Green is still an influence.

Mr Somers has sent a letter to Mr King criticising his "very damaging" statements and "innuendos".

The chairman has yet to respond to questions raised by Mr King and the Union of Fans - a collaboration of supporters groups - including an explanation of what has happened to Mr Green's holding in Rangers International Football Club (RIFC).

Mr Somers told Mr King: "These statements and innuendos are very damaging to the club, which we can only assume is your intention. We wish you to attend a meeting to explain your allegations in more detail as soon as possible."

The letter was released after the club issued a denial of rumours that RIFC was about to enter administration.
