Photos: Rangers fan makes his feelings towards Mike Ashley clear at EGM

The Newcastle United owner was the subject of a clear message from a Rangers supporter.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley was the subject of the above message from a Rangers fan outside Ibrox on Friday morning, as the club held an extraordinary EGM.

The Newcastle supremo has become increasingly involved with Rangers of late but, at the club's EGM on Friday, BBC News report that Derek Llambias and finance director Barry Leach were voted off the Rangers board by shareholders, with Dave King's consortium receiving 85 per cent of the vote, thereby winning places on the board in their stead.

And the decision has clearly pleased one Rangers fan, who had a distinct message written down for the Newcastle man.

On the pitch, meanwhile, Rangers will have to put their confidence and form issues to one side as they travel to Cowdenbeath later today (3pm kick-off British Time).

The Scottish Championship side's off-field distractions have clearly affected the first team's performance, while the Rangers squad as a whole have, excuses aside, underperformed in recent months. Newcastle, meanwhile, are not in action this weekend.

The Gers currently sit four points behind second-placed Hibernian but have three games in hand over Hibs. It's time to take their season by the scruff of the neck.
