Bill Ng hoping to put Singapore on the map by taking over Rangers

Singapore businessman Bill Ng is planning to put his nation on the world football map by taking the reins at Scottish giants Rangers.

The 52-year old heads the Far East consortium which is up against Paul Murray's Blue Knights and a bid from the USA for Craig Whyte's majority shareholding. Ng is prepared to split £12million between the creditors in order to take control of 'Gers but he says his plan is not all about money.

"This is a chance to put Singapore on the world football map," Ng said.

"We're not just doing this for financial reasons.

"If we take over Rangers, we've got plans that will positively impact Singapore football in the long run.

"Our population size is quite similar to Scotland's, so there's plenty for us to learn from them in terms of football development.

"We aim to engage the FA of Singapore with more ideas that can benefit local football."
