Rangers’ administrators have said they have received “several expressions of interest from parties not connected to the club” since taking over the running of the Scottish Premier League champions.
Paul Clark, of administrators Duff and Phelps, made the announcement during a press conference in Glasgow.
Duff and Phelps were appointed on Tuesday after Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) forced the issue in the Court of Session in a bid to secure payment of £9million in PAYE and VAT, accrued since Craig Whyte’s takeover of Rangers in May last year.
Rangers were immediately deducted ten points by the Scottish Premier League, leaving them 14 points adrift of Celtic and with little hope of winning a fourth successive title.
Clark said that interest in the cash-strapped club will be given due consideration.
“As administrators we have to look at all other expressions of interest in the club and to date we have received several expressions of interest from parties not connected to the club,” Clark said. “These will be subject to ongoing discussions and examined in the forthcoming days.”
