Kris Boyd: Rangers fans want ‘accountability’ from Ibrox board -Dlight News

The Rangers fans stages another protest at Fir Park

Sky Sports’ Kris Boyd believes Rangers supporters want the board to be held “responsible” for the lack of trophies in recent seasons.

The club’s fans sent another message to managing director Stewart Robertson and sporting director Ross Wilson ahead of Saturday’s match at Motherwell, live on Sky Sports.

They held up flyers with crossed faces and ‘Time for Change’, while a banner displaying the same message was unfurled before kick-off.

It comes after the Union Bears fan group left their seats at Ibrox in protest against the board during last Sunday’s Scottish Cup win over Raith Rovers.

A number of banners have been unfurled at games this season, including one during their league win over Kilmarnock, claiming the board have strayed off the ball since their 2020/21 title success.

Boyd, who made more than 170 appearances for Rangers over two seasons, understands why it’s happening.

“Fans get frustrated and then they start testing the board. It’s very hard to stop and it seems to be growing week by week,” he said on Sky sports.

“Recruiting in Rangers It hasn’t been good enough, so there has to be accountability.

“There are ways to protest and it should be peaceful. You can understand their frustration because they pay a lot of money, but so do those who don’t participate in the protests.”

“But there is no doubt that something has to happen, and that it happens quickly at the club.”
