Sale Sharks owner Kennedy back in for Rangers

Brian Kennedy has returned to the fore to take over at Rangers FC.

The Sale Sharks owner was an initial bidder for the Glasgow giants put pulled back on his interest when he discovered there were a few other serious bids going for majority shareholding.

But Kennedy was not happy in seeing limited action taking place from the preferred American and Singapore bids and has now thrown his hat back in the ring with a much improved offer.

And Kennedy suggests that a decision by administrators Duff & Phelps must be made soon and has urged them to look more closely at either his bid or that of Paul Murray's Blue Knights.

"I've spoken to Paul Murray and I believe the administrators have to make a decision," Kennedy told SunSport.

"I have made a substantially improved verbal offer and am waiting for the administrators to come back to me.

"Whether they go the Paul Murray and Ticketus route or my way, I would implore them to act swiftly."

He added: "We're both coming at it from exactly the same angle. We both have Rangers at heart, we're both Scottish, both live here and both know what's best for the club. We've got responsibility, we've got accountability.

"Whether it's Paul or me I don't mind, I just want this to be sorted - and sorted soon."
