Brian Kennedy: Confirms offer that would have put him in control of Rangers
Brian Kennedy has confirmed that he did make a bid to take majority control of newco Rangers.
The Sale Sharks owner was initially involved in attempts to buy Rangers both by himself and as part of the Blue Knights consortium, before Charles Green's Sevco Scotland took over.
Green bought Rangers' assets for £5.5 million when the club was liquidated in June, but it has emerged that Kennedy has since made an offer to take control.
"I have recently had several confidential meetings with a gentleman representing the shareholders of Sevco, with regards to my interest in purchasing a majority shareholding in Rangers Football Club," said Kennedy in a statement.
"The details of these meetings and the written offer I have submitted have been disclosed from within the club.
"Now that this has leaked I have I have no alternative but to confirm that what is reported in the Daily Record regarding such matters is accurate.
"I have no further comment to make at this time."
