Rangers manager Steven Gerrard doesn’t think much will change for him after news broke last night of Dave King’s plan to sell his shares in the Light Blues to Club1872.
King will sell his 20.37 per cent stake in the club’s owner RIFC plc if they can raise the required £13million purchase price in the next three years, mking them the club’s largest individual shareholder.
Gerrard hailed his “very strong” bond with the former Ibrox chairman and admits that the thinks the move to sell his shares to the fans group to be a positive one.
“I don’t think much changes for me in terms of the dynamics and how things work. Obviously Dave stepped aside some time ago,” Gerrard said. [Rangers TV]
“My relationship with Dave is very strong, I am still in constant dialogue with Dave. Although the news was new to me. I didn’t have any idea that was going to break.
“I haven’t really had time to read up about it or educate myself, if you like, on what could happen in the short, medium and long term.
“I suppose it is a positive in terms of what I have read so far, in terms of the fans getting closer and giving them more ownership.
“But, look, with stuff like that at that level of the club, I will leave that to the people in the suits and the businessman to do the right thing by Rangers.
“For me, on a daily basis, nothing really changes but I am sure when I have future chats with Ross and Stewart and the board I will be brought up to speed with what is going on in the short, medium and long term.”
