FORMER Rangers chairman Alastair Johnston would be delighted to see former director Dave King return to the club, but believes the businessman would only get involved if he is given a significant level of control.
King’s last time at Rangers was halted over charges in South Africa in a tax dispute, but he has now agreed to pay almost £44million to the Revenue Service, and held talks at the weekend with Rangers chief executive Craig Mather,
Johnston said: “Dave King is a very bright guy, keeps his cards very close to his chest and I think his agenda, his experience and the care and attention he pays to financial matters could serve Rangers well.”
But he added: “Dave is not going to go in there in any circumstance where he doesn’t have a control. If Dave can’t see the role as chairman as being more than a figurehead then I don’t think he’ll be interested.”
