Quoted by the Scottish Sun on 9th July, ex-Gers chairman King defended Club 1872 from critics looking to action a vote of no confidence in its board.
The supporters trust aims to become Rangers’ biggest individual shareholder once their agreed share purchase from King is complete.

Maguire cited Man United breakaway club FC United as an example of how things can deteriorate.

“I think Dave King will be monitoring this,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“He wants as swift a resolution of his shareholding position as can be. He also wants to have confidence in the people to whom he does transfer the shares.
“There does appear to be different viewpoints at Club 1872. There have been communications issues, and good communication and transparency is essential in all organisations.
“We saw something similiar happen a few years ago at FC United of Manchester.
“What started out as a body that was incredibly united started to fall apart because people wanted to take the club in a different direction. This might be an issue there at Rangers. “
