Club 9 Sports released a priceless statement tonight indicating they are considering an investment in Rangers only as part of a consortium and will not be bidding for the club on their own.
So far, so clear. They then entertain us with a remarkable interpretation of liquidation, saying:
“We understand that it has been strongly rumored that our group planned to “liquidate” the club. It should be made clear that any party that attempts to acquire the club, eliminate the debts, affect a turnaround, invest monies and put the club back on solid ground is in fact “saving” the club from liquidation and preserving its past and its future.
“In an asset purchase, all of the good and valuable assets (records, marks, names, trophies, players, staff, history) are preserved and separated from the bad and harmful liabilities (tax bills, bad contracts, creditors), which have put the club into administration and which act to force the entirety into liquidation.”
“Saving” the club from liquidation by putting the entirety into liquidation. Don’t laugh, they honestly wrote this.
For the record, you can’t sell history or records. Can you imagine? Britain could flog off our whole empire period and maybe use the current economic crisis in Greece to buy their classical period from them. Aristotle, from Scotland, perhaps.
Personally, I would love to be the first Briton to hold aloft the European Cup, maybe Billy McNeill would sell me that record? He’s had it for 45 years now, it can’t be worth that much to him anymore.
I wonder how much Messi would sell his record breaking Champions League history? Barca are playing catch-up with Real Madrid in the European Champions stakes. Instead of buying expensive footballers they could just offer Real cash for some of the trophies won during the 1950s.
David Murray should have saved himself all the trouble and just offered our old board a few million for the Lisbon history, just think:
Rangers, European Champions, 1967. Opportunity missed. Murray should have had a word with Club 9.
I’m enjoying these guys already, hope they are given the green light tomorrow. What terrified Brian Kennedy floats my boat. They even finished off with some sweet platitudes about a “legendary fan base”. I think we have a winner….
