Newco Rangers Consortium Says It Would Sell Club For $77M
Published July 10, 2012
WHICH DIVISION?: The Scottish DAILY RECORD reported that Hibernian FC fans have launched "a stinging attack" on the Scottish Football Association and the Scottish Premier League, accusing them of "bullying" the SFL’s clubs into allowing the Rangers into the First Division. Third Division's Annan FC insisted the Hibs supporters "are correct." Annan was the last club to gain admission to the Third Division four years ago, and club Chair Henry McLelland said that the Rangers "must also start in the bottom tier irrespective of the financial implications" (DAILY RECORD, 7/9). STV reported that the Rangers Supporters Trust stated that the club should be "made to start life in the bottom tier" of the SFL. In a statement on its website, the Rangers Supporters Trust said, "The Rangers fans have made it very clear that we wish the club to resume playing in Division Three. This is the correct solution and one which means the club will forever be beyond reproach" (STV, 7/9).
