Ibrox: Home of Rangers

The brothers, whose Greenock business empire includes bus firm McGill's, invested in the Ibrox club last year and are in line to buy former chief executive Charles Green's shares when he is free to sell them under stock exchange rules.

Sandy Easdale said: "We took a decision to invest in the club. It is very hard to comment but we are serious about taking it forward.

"We have a delicate deal that when shares are available, we will purchase them.

"Other shares are an option to us and that is growing stronger. Every day we have some more negotiations with other parties."

James Easdale added: "When you spend that amount of money on any business you wouldn't go without a voice.

"A presence on the board is something we would be seeking in the mid-term."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
