Rangers boss Smith leaving takeover to the businessmen

The ongoing proposed takeover talk surrounding Rangers FC continues to grab headlines.

The Glasgow club is set to be taken over, primarily by businessman Craig Whyte, with London-based property developer Andrew Ellis grabbing a part of the percentage.

But negotiations have again been stalled after Rangers chairman Alastair Johnston decided to hold off any further talks until the end of the season.

When asked about the current situation, Smith insisted that an event of this magnitude was something he preferred to leave to the experts.

"I just leave that to other people. As long as somebody can invest a substantial amount of money at the start of the season, that's the only thing that we worry about on the football side of things," he said after last night's 4-0 win over Dundee United.

"That thing is in the background just now, I couldn't tell you very much about what's happening.

"We are just concentrating on the football at the moment, which is going to be occupying our thoughts hopefully for the next two or three weeks."
