Latest twist in bitter feud
Rangers board seeks to deny Ashley voting rights
Rangers are seeking to block Mike Ashley’s attempts to have a say in affairs at Ibrox by removing voting rights from any shareholder involved in running another club.
The proposal is likely to be included among the resolutions at the club’s Annual General Meeting at the end of the month.
It is the latest move in an increasingly bitter battle between chairman Dave King and the majority shareholder in retailer Sports Direct who also owns Newcastle United.
This latest twist will add further complexity to control of affairs at Rangers. Ashley effectively runs Rangers’ retailing operations which is subject to legal action.
The board now wants to adopt a ruling by the Scottish FA forbidding any person with influence at the club being involved in any capacity with another club without their consent.
The AGM takes place at the Clyde Auditorium on 27 November.
