RANGERS SET FOR NEW OWNERS
Rangers could soon be owned by owners from the Far East and the Americas according to the men in charge of Rangers.
Administrator Paul Clark has recently said that owners from the Americas and the Far East have been in touch with him over the possibility of buying Rangers.
The future of stricken Scottish champions has become under major doubt after they were recently put under administration following the huge debt owed it to the HMRC.
Falling into administration also cost them 10 points in the league, making even the best Scottish Premier League betting redundant as Celtic romp home to the league title. It has also cost them a place in Europe next season because the books weren’t ready in time for the UEFA deadline.
Former Rangers director Paul Murray recently said that he has put together a consortium that will aim to buy the club from the hands of the administrators. A formal offer is expected to be submitted by the end of this week.
A number of talks have also been held with the numbers of the current squad over the possibility of a wage cut. Finally, it was revealed this week that a significant portion of the playing staff will be taking a 75% wage cut in order to help Rangers be solvent.
Paul Clark has revealed that one of the significant ideas is to present Rangers with the new owner by the end of the season. Despite the limited time available, Paul Clark has said that a number of parties have shown interest.
“We’re talking about Scotland, wider UK and some overseas parties. We hope and believe that a new owner will be installed before the end of the season so that it’s not us in charge at season’s end. That’s our objective. What we’ve done so that people realise they need to speed themselves up is to say that on Friday we want to receive absolute proof of your funding,” Paul Clark said.
He, however, failed to reveal any specific details about the buyers is currently negotiating with at the moment.
