'Smell the fear' - Celtic fans react to potential £11m bill for Dave King
By James Black
Celtic fans have taken to Twitter in their droves as Rangers chairman Dave King faces an £11million bill to buy the remaining shares in the Ibrox giants.
A statement from the Takeover Panel stated that King had an obligation to make an offer for the remaining shares in the company however King rejected that notion.
Here are some of their comments:

Today in court Dave King under oath said he has no access to 11m pounds,in 2015 he said he had in excess of 30m and will invest immediately

But Dave King is still ready to invest at the same ratio as other high worth investors, right?

Go read @BBCAlLamont’s account from today. Pretty clear that as many have said previously: Dave King is a broke huckster.

Aye, they all frantically wanted to know who was behind them. Turns out the current trust is supposedly not anything to do with Dave King.
