Brown launches bid to buy Rangers’ assets


Former Rangers player, John Brown, spoke to Sky Sports this morning outside Ibrox and launched a takeover bid for the former club’s assets.  Yesterday he resigned as a scout for the company before urging Rangers fans not to renew their season tickets.

In an interview reminiscent of a memorable scene from Blazing Saddles, Brown told Sky:

“If [the fans]invest, we’ll setup a bank account that all the season ticket money can go in there, and we can guarantee that we will buy this club over from this regime because it’s coming back into Rangers hands.

“Gone are the days, of the, the money that we spent.  It’s going to be handled differently this time.  The fans are going to buy it over.  We have the backing from powerful people who are going to invest, but the fans will invest, and they’ll offer Charles Green, if he says he’s got the title deeds in his name, we’ll make an offer, once we see the hidden letters, any deeds that have been done in the past, if there’s any stumbling blocks, where’s Ticketus in all this, we’ll deal with that, once we see the title deeds, of this stadium, that I was proud to play for, in a number of years through nine-in-a-row, and we’re going to get our club back, but we need a bit of honesty from Charles Green.”

Reports that after hearing Brown, Charlie Nicholas is worried for his analyst position with the broadcaster, have not been confirmed.

    How many times do I have to try to tell you


    That I’m sorry for the things I’ve done


    But when I start to try to tell you


    That’s when you have to tell me


    Hey… this kind of trouble’s only just begun


    I tell myself too many times


    Why don’t you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut


    That’s why it hurts so bad to hear the words


    That keep on falling from your mouth


    Falling from your mouth


    Falling from your mouth


    Tell me…







    I may be mad


    I may be blind


    I may be viciously unkind


    But I can still read what you’re thinking


    And I’ve heard is said too many times


    That you’d be better off




    Why can’t you see this boat is sinking


    (this boat is sinking this boat is sinking)


    Let’s go down to the water’s edge


    And we can cast away those doubts


    Some things are better left unsaid


    But they still turn me inside out


    Turning inside out turning inside out


    Tell me…




    Tell me…





    This is the book I never read


    These are the words I never said


    This is the path I’ll never tread


    These are the dreams I’ll dream instead


    This is the joy that’s seldom spread


    These are the tears…


    The tears we shed


    This is the fear


    This is the dread


    These are the contents of my head


    And these are the years that we have spent


    And this is what they represent


    And this is how I feel


    Do you know how I feel ?


    ’cause i don’t think you know how I feel


    I don’t think you know what I feel


    I don’t think you know what I feel


    You don’t know what I feel

    Surely a typo on RM in response to the question ‘What if there is no Rangers in time for 2012/2013?’:



    ‘We trawl the world playing friendless’



    Definitely a typo. It’s spelt “brawl”

    Just when Sevco fans thought it couldn’t get any worse, up pop Brown and Griffin to lend their “support”.

  8. Should the zombies be knocked back by the SFL to even enter at Division 3, what is the next level down for a West of Scotland club? There are South of Scotland, East of Scotland and Highland leagues and below that the Juniors leagues, but what does the West have?? Would it be straight to theJjuniors?

    Ok I am in real hun skelping mood today.



    I have already been down to my GP to tell him about my insatiable habit.



    He referred me to an expert psychologist.



    We had 5 sessions together and he is now a bigger hun skelper than me.



    We agree that we need to wean ourselves eventually off the skelping as the source is about to dry up.



    But we have to make hay as the sun shines.



    So all you huns come on down …..



    Hail Hail

  12. Armed Forces day?



    When are we having the Orphans and Widows day to counterbalance it?

  13. He must be the only football player that played for a stadium and not a club.



    On you go Brown with your new bank account…….season ticket money to buy the assets…….where have we heard that one before???

    Not a typo…. just a statement of fact…they are sans friends!

  16. How long before this “bidder” wuns out of steam and momentum, more grandstanding maybe, should fill a few columns on the back pages for a few days, nothing more I’m guessing.

  17. When you hear the Prime Prevaricator,the dishonourable Claggeron,speak…you just know where the NHS is headed: charity wards. Welcome to the imminent return of The Knights Hospitaler. How far back does this despicable un-mandated coalition want to take us?


    Apologies for going off-message,but this UKplc govt. makes me froth at the gills.


    And the whole carry-on with rfc(ghosted) is a reflection of the corruption in the upper echelons of our bankster/gangster economy and society.


    It’s like the post-war reforms and improvements were all one big anomaly that is being ‘corrected’ and binned.


    And yet only 15% of the cuts set out in this fake austerity have yet been implemented.


    Madness I tell ya,madness.

  18. In your wildest dreams could you ever envisage the death throes that mob are going through. Best thing is that it is all ‘rangers men’ who are causing it now fighting for the scraps.

  19. I have been thinking for quite a long time that there willl be more than one team calling itself some variant of Rangers by the time the season kicks off. I think there’s a case for the SFL letting in at least two of them – maybe four or five – and they could play each other at Ibrox Park once a month. The policing would be a problem if they all wore the same colours, mind you – infiltration and confusion all round. Fortunately, everyone who’s made a bid so far is called after a colour, so the league could insist on each subspecies playing in its owner’s colour, a nicely medieval touch. There would be the White Rangers, the Brown Rangers, the Green Rangers. What’s Eric Black up to these days? And Mick Hucknall? And Rabbi Lionel Blue?

  20. In an interview reminiscent of a memorable scene from Blazing Saddles, Brown told Sky:



    Ok ghuys time for blazing saddles references.



    Rankers! We don’t need no stinking Rankers!



    Hurumph, I didn’t hear a hurumph from you wfplg!



    Mongo’s gonna get you!



    The Sevco kid!!
