Dave King has urged Rangers supporters to stay away from Ibrox when it stages the general meeting next month which could thrust him into power.
The Gers board was forced into an embarrassing climbdown yesterday when a second London hotel backed out of hosting the crucial shareholder vote.
The club's directors announced yesterday it had hired The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London for the meeting - called by former oldco director King - on March 4. But hours later the five-star venue cancelled the booking after deciding the meeting - which could call time on the unpopular regime currently controlling Rangers and hand power to King - might "compromise" the security of guests and staff.
There were fears swathes of supporters would descend on the hotel to protest against directors David Somers, James Easdale, Derek Llambias and Barry Leach.
