Celtic fans slam Rangers chairman Dave King for latest statement

Rangers chairman Dave King has called for an independent investigation into SPFL chairman Murdoch MacLennan and his business links with Celtic majority shareholder Dermot Desmond.

The Light Blues chief has also called for MacLennan’s suspension while such an investigation takes place, stating that ‘the credibility of Scottish Football in the minds of supporters and sponsors is at stake and urgent action is required.’

As reported by The Daily Record, the SPFL are adamant there is no conflict of interest.

It’s the latest in a long season of incendiary statements from the Ibrox chairman, with opposition fans growing increasingly amused with each new one that is released.

It’s also the second time in the last week alone that King has called for a probe into Scottish football’s governing bodies.

Celtic fans have reacted about as you’d expect, plenty with humour and others with sheer amazement given the Rangers chairman’s previous clashes with the powers that be in Scottish football.

They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
