Glasgow Rangers fans have been reacting to a tweet from journalist Tom English on Dave King after his appearance on the Moving the Goalposts podcast.
King has been involved with the Ibrox outfit since 2000, investing in the club heavily since then. He was with the Gers as they went into administration in 2012 (BBC), and he has helped them return to the Premiership and close in on a first title in 10 years since then.
On the podcast, he was enjoying the 54-time Scottish champions’ recent success. English commented on his appearance, and mentioned comments made by King in 2018 – he had predicted that Celtic would fold like a “house of cards” (The Scottish Sun), something which has actually happened.
Are you happy that Dave King is planning to sell his shares to Club 1872?
English didn’t agree with those comments and made that clear on Twitter. His comments attracted plenty of attention from the Gers supporters, and the took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments on King from English
“It really is great that Dave can still upset media and other fans when he is not even chairman anymore, long may it continue.”
“Dave King stepped down as chairman so he could live full time in Tom English’s head.”
“Tom’s taking things well I see….”
“Blah blah blah”
“Up ye Tom”
“The house of cards description is relevant though. King has been wrong on a number of things but he’s currently being proved right. Downsizing.”
In other news, Rangers fans are livid at this newspaper article.
