Brian Kennedy's $8.7M Offer To Buy Rangers Still On The Table
Published July 24, 2012
TICKETS SLASHED: The DAILY RECORD also reported that Rangers fans "will pay up to 50% less for season tickets in the Irn-Bru Third Division." The Ibrox newco announced their prices for next term, although they "will not sell season tickets until they secure Rangers' Scottish Football Association membership." Full adult and concession prices have been reduced by a third, and children's tickets have been cut in half. Prices start at £65 ($101) for juveniles and £258 ($401) for adults (DAILY RECORD, 7/23).
HELPING HAND: In London, Esplin & Peach reported that football agent Paul Stretford is "assisting" Rangers newco, which confirmed the story. Green is using the services of the agent, who was banned in '08 for 18 months and fined £300,000 ($469,000) for a number of misconduct charges relating to how he acquired the right to represent English footballer Wayne Rooney. Stretford's link with the Ibrox club is revealed as Manager Ally McCoist "prepares to bolster his squad for life in the Irn-Bru Third Division next season." On acceptance of SFA membership the manager "will have until Sept. 1 to sign players" before a 12-month transfer embargo begins (LONDON TIMES, 7/23).
