“I have a cunning plan”
The directors of League One side Bury have issued a statement scotching the bizarre rumours circulating this morning that Rangers were planning to buy the club and start again in the English league in a bid to resolve their current financial woes.
Several newspapers were reporting that new Rangers owner Charles Green was preparing a ruse to buy out an English lower league club, i.e, Bury, re-brand it and then take up their fixtures as of next season should the Gers be jettisoned from the SPL next month (they’ve already been left off the official fixture list).
However, Bury ain’t interested Bub, with the Shakers releasing the following statement but a few moments ago:
“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.
“Bury FC is a proud historical club, and as such proudly represents the town, community, people, and above all supporters of Bury.
“The directors of Bury FC place the integrity and morality of the club, and football as a whole, way above and beyond any possible financial gain, and as such wish to reassure all Shakers fans of this fact.”
Bonkers. Just… bonkers.
