Now that the transfer window is shut, the rumour mill has gone quiet concerning all things Rangers, or so you would think.
Has anyone else heard this rumour about Graham Souness becoming our new chairman? It come up in conversation twice this week from various people .
Good ? Bad ? Thoughts??

Former Gers manager and all round legend, Graeme Souness, has been linked with a sensational return to the Ibrox club to replace the outgoing chairman, Dave King, mainly due to a throw away comment he left at a dinner event in Scotland over the weekend when he claimed that he could return.
Souness arrived at Rangers in 1986 in a blaze of glory and football was never to be the same again in the country that he captained with such authority, the “revolution” began and – despite a minor hiccup in 1987/88 – domestic dominance would be theirs for almost the whole of the nineties.
Would you like to see Souness return as Chairman?
With the chance of such a popular and well respected figure returning to Govan, fans of the Light Blues took to Twitter to speculate on the impact he would have – again.
I agree a business head is what’s needed in that position.
I don’t know if he has the business acumen.
Tho I do know he’ll kick anyone’s ass that comes after us. I personally would like to see him back. In any capacity

Souness was talking at a function in Dumfries Friday evening and he said he would never get involved with managing again but he will definitely return to Rangers in some form in the near future.
Imagine Gerrard manager and Souness chairman.
Would be the icing on the cake.

Souness and Gerrard……how amazing would that be. Absolute dream team 💙

I can’t see that happening but it would be great, we certainly wouldn’t be sitting in silence letting everyone take pot shots at us if he was here, that’s for sure

May I suggest you do a little digging into Mr Souness’ business acumen, his vast wealth was certainly not accumulated on football alone. A very astute businessman who would make a perfect acquisition to our football club, and what’s more the soon to be vacant chairman’s position.

Would love this to be true

Souness would certainly bring serious gravitas to the club and a presence that has been sadly lacked since Rangers returned to something close to their old selves, whether or not he gets the chance again is another story.
