‘They need to show their hand’ Kenny Dalglish insists Rangers must prove they are not bluffing

Celtic legend Kenny Dalglish insists Rangers must provide evidence of wrongdoing by the SPFL now, to prove they are indeed not bluffing about their smoking gun – and if there is sufficient evidence Dalglish would back another inquiry.

So far Rangers have not provided any proof, not even an iota of proof, despite the SPFL asking them to provide it.

He wrote in the Sunday Post: “Some people have suggested they are bluffing, and do not possess the ‘smoking gun’.

“Well, Rangers interim chairman Douglas Park and chief executive Stewart Robertson need to prove otherwise.

“If Rangers are in possession of factual information that is beneficial to the wider well-being of Scottish football then they need to release it.

“To gain support and momentum, they need to release some of the information they have for everyone to digest.

“This is an important issue that cannot be swept under the carpet.

“Rangers want a more in-depth inquiry, and want an independent body to look at it all.

“They are quite right to ask for this as their claims of bullying and coercing don’t appear to have been investigated.

“Will enough other clubs stand shoulder to shoulder with them to get the 75% support within the SPFL required to get an independent investigation?

“It looks like being a tall order to get three-quarters of the clubs to go with them.

“That’s why they need to show their hand. Or, at least, a part of it.

“What information do they have? Do they really have enough to leave us all concerned about the way game is being governed?

“There is a serious division between the SPFL executive and Rangers, and that isn’t healthy.

“It needs to be sorted out and, at the moment, the ball is very much in Rangers’ court.”
