Pundit makes £100m+ claim if Douglas Park is to leave Rangers

Barry Ferguson claims that if £100million+ is being invested into Rangers then Douglas Park will leave in the interests of the club.

There have been Middle East-based consortiums that have been fronts for the state to invest money into the Premier League and clubs like PSG in France.

If that ever happens at Rangers, Ferguson admits that Park will not stand in their way and allow the transition of power to take place.

This comes after Ferguson saw the fans put out banners calling for a change of leadership at Rangers recently.

He told Go Radio on 6 March, “I get asked about the board situation and I know Douglas Park very well. I am not just saying this because I know him.

“But he has put his money where his mouth is. I am sure if an investor came in from the middle east let’s say for talking sake, and is willing to invest in Rangers hundreds of millions, I am sure Douglas Park would step aside and allow that to happen if it was all good to go. There’s no doubt in my mind. But that’s just an example.”

Benefactors needed

If Rangers are to go to the next level and get out of this current mess, it seems like foreign investment is the way to go.

Under this structure, there is little to no chance of anything happening that will work in the best interests of the club.

We’ve seen that apart from Park, the likes of Stewart Robertson, Ross Wilson and others, have constantly let the fans down.

Their blatant excuses in AGMs show that they think they’re doing the right job and fans wouldn’t even be aware unless footage ran the rounds on social media.

It remains to be seen if there are any investors keen as the SPFL isn’t really a profitable league as the Premier League.

Neither are Rangers competing for top European honours for there to be eyeballs and money involved so it could be a tricky situation.

In other Rangers news, the club are in line for a multi-million windfall from the Premier League after a £10m Auchenhowie milestone was reached.
