Who would be a Rangers fan?

Manchester United, reported to have the largest fan base in the World, may have had issues with the owners but they know who they are dealing with and that they will playing at Old Trafford in the Premier League next season.

The speculation changes daily, earlier in the week at FTD before the news broke, we heard that Rangers were to buy League One Bury FC ?

National newspaper reported on Thursday morning that the Light Blues would look to take up Bury's fixtures in England's third tier next term, continuing to play their home games at Ibrox?

Rangers and Celtic playing in England has long been considered to provide access to Premier League TV money for the Old firm but Bury Rangers?

The rumour was quickly denied by the Shakers Chairman Brian Fenton but with the SPL clubs possibly allowing "Newco" to the join the league and then relegate the club to SFL First Division has credence given the financial impact on the SPL clubs from loss of gate receipts looks a possibility. 

For Rangers "newco" to start again in SFL Third Division would help with clubs finances and would give the clubs at this level a financial injection that would be good for Scottish football but for "newco" the lack of European football will impact on the club's ability to compete at the highest level.

Many years ago I was a guest of Rangers when they played Paris Saint-Germain, you could not find more friendly hosts and the atmosphere was as good as many stadiums at the top clubs in England and Europe.

Fans have not got the club in the mess they are in but without supporters paying their hard-up cash to watch the national game we would all be worse off.
