Police Investigating Links To Former Scottish Rangers Owner Craig Whyte
Published November 13, 2013
NEXT MAN UP: The SCOTSMAN reported Scottish Premier League Dundee CEO Scot Gardiner "has been given permission to speak to Rangers with a view to becoming the club’s new chief executive." Gardiner is "currently the man in charge at Dens Park, but Dundee’s American owners have given the former Rangers employee permission to enter talks over the Ibrox job." Gardiner is reportedly set for meetings with Chair David Somers and the club’s two remaining directors, Brian Stockbridge and James Easdale (SCOTSMAN, 11/12). In Glasgow, Keith Jackson reported it is "conceivable Gardiner could accept the highly-paid position only then to be dismissed in four weeks’ time when the shareholders vote on the men they want to run the club’s affairs." Rebels Jim McColl and Murray "have already identified" former Liverpool Managing Dir Christian Purslow "as their choice for the role of CEO." It is "understood he has agreed to go to work at Ibrox if McColl and Murray triumph." But Gardiner "is a lifelong Rangers fan and may find it impossible to ignore the lure of such a key and lucrative boardroom position" (DAILY RECORD, 11/12).
