Kieran Maguire: There is 'conflict' in Rangers boardroom as George Taylor news confirmed

George Taylor’s appointment as a director can only help soothe ongoing “conflict” in the Rangers boardroom.

That is the view of finance guru Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the latest news from within the corridors of power at Ibrox.

A filing with Companies House on Monday (1 August) shows that Taylor has been named as director at Rangers’ parent company RIFC.

Taylor, who owns 10 per cent of Rangers, was also named as a person with significant control of the club in a separate update on the same day.

Both Companies House submissions were backdated to 26 July.

Taylor was born in Glasgow but currently runs his investment career out of Hong Kong.

Maguire claims that new blood can only be a good thing behind the scenes at the club.

“He is somebody who we know is independently wealthy and successful,” he told Football Insider’s Adam Williams.

“He has also been named a person of significant control.

“We know that there has been conflict at the board level both historically and recently. I think having new people coming in can only benefit the club going forwards.

Former chairman Dave King has been involved in a public spat with the current board of directors at Ibrox.

The 67-year-old, who stepped down from the board in 2020 but retains a significant stake in the club, has stated that he intends to return to the club’s hierarchy.
