Hearts Become First Football Club To Admit They Will Vote Against Rangers Newco
Published June 22, 2012
RUMOR BURIED: In London, Lisa Gray reported that League One's Bury have "poured cold water" on suggestions they could be bought by the Rangers as "part of a plan for the Glasgow giants to ply their trade in England." Numerous reports claimed Green's consortium have "looked into the possibility" of acquiring Bury. A Bury BOD statement said, "Whilst investment into Bury Football Club is always welcome, any offer of investment will only be viewed at taking the club forward in its only one guise possible -- based in the town of Bury, and as Bury Football Club" (INDEPENDENT, 6/21).
