Derek Llambias blasts Rangers senior figure, states what the club needs
By Amir Mir
David Llambias has blasted Rangers senior figure Dave King for the manner in which he is running the club.
The Gers former chief executive asked King ‘where is the money?’ at the struggling Scottish giants as he believes it needs better guidance.
Chairman King currently has the task of appointing a new manager at Ibrox after the club announced earlier this month that Mark Warburton had resigned from his post.
Despite Warburton denying those claims, Rangers are now on the lookout for a new boss as they continue to struggle in the SPL.
Llambias did not hold back when offering his views on King and as he stated what needs to be done a the club.

“Last time I spoke to you guys when we were voted off I asked ‘where was the money? where was the cash?’,” Llambias told Sky Sports, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“There was no money, there was no nomad, there’s no listing and we’re two years on and it’s exactly the same. Where is the money?
“To be honest with you, the club has got great history, wonderful traditions and they just need somebody with a lot of money behind it who are going to produce the goods.”
Many of Rangers’ signing last summer were free transfers, most notably Joey Barton, Phillipe Senderos and Niko Kranjcar.
Money was only splashed out on striker Joe Garner who made a switch from Championship side Preston North End.
During Warburton’s reign, he masterminded an impressive win against Celtic last term while they were a Championship side and then guided them to the top flight.
However, since then they have suffered numerous defeats against their Old Firm rivals which has seen them fall further behind the SPL champions.
Brendan Rodgers side are currently 30 points ahead of their Glasgow counterparts as they are yet to taste defeat on the domestic scene in Scotland.
In other Rangers news, Jimmy Nicholl believes this top flight manager should be the next Gers boss.
