Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has taken aim at the Ibrox board over the “in-house fighting” after Dave King wasn’t invited into the director’s box for the recent game against Motherwell – calling the row between the board and King “sad”.
King was spotted in a hospitality box in the Sandy Jardine stand as Gio van Bronckhorst’s side slipped to a 2-2 draw against the Steelmen.
The former Ibrox chairman has taken a number of public digs at the board over perceived failings, confirming recently he hadn’t spoken to replacement Douglas Park since leaving the board.
While Ferguson admits he doesn’t know the specifics of the fall-out between King and his former colleagues, the ex-Rangers skipper thinks here is a “fair amount of bickering” going on.
“There’s a lot of in-house fighting, it’s clear to see,” Ferguson said [Go Football Show]
“In terms of Dave King, I think you need to remember what Dave King did for Rangers. He came in and saved them. He saved them.
“He wasn’t invited into the director’s box. No matter if you don’t see eye-to-eye he was still a big part of Rangers for what he did.
“He got Rangers out of the mess they were in at the time and he was a big part of getting them where they are just now.
“Look we don’t know what’s going on inside the boardroom, but it looks as if there’s a fair bit of bickering going on.
“In terms of team sport, I played in plenty of teams where you don’t really see eye-to-eye but when you cross that white line you fight for each other.
“You don’t go out for a beer or spend a lot of time with them, that’s just what happens in football. You get on with some of them, then there are some people you don’t get on with too well.
“When I read [about] it, sad is probably the right word.”
