FORMER Rangers supremo Dave King is eyeing a sensational return to the Ibrox board.

The ex-club chairman has already served notice to the current Gers hierarchy of his remarkable intentions, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.

King quit the champions in March 2020, in order to focus on business in South Africa, but the Glaswegian, still the club’s largest shareholder with a 15.45 per cent stake, is now plotting an astonishing comeback.

He said: “Now that my business interests have stabilised following the devastations of Covid, I have advised the board of RIFC plc that I am available to rejoin the board and offer my services to the further development of the club.

“I remain the largest shareholder of RIFC and look forward to many years of service to the club and, most importantly, to its supporters.”

Relations between Johannesburg-based King and the current board have become stretched in recent times and last month he slammed “incorrect” information in the annual accounts after it was revealed he had made £832,000 in interest repayments from a £5million loan he’d given the club.

He also insisted he had a “moral obligation” to vote against Graeme Park’s re-election as a director.

King also launched an attack on the “shameful and disloyal” treatment of Club 1872, as he accused his one-time Ibrox allies of marginalising the fan group.

King, who holds more than 65 million shares in Rangers International Football Club plc, took control of the club from the clutches of Mike Ashley in 2015.
