According to the Daily Record, Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is again interested in purchasing Rangers again, in speculation that will no doubt anger Gers fans.

Manager Mark Warburton left the club last month along with David Weir and Frank McParland, meaning that the Gers need a manager, assistant manager and even a Director of Football.

Chairman Dave King has been heavily criticised for not investing enough money into new signings, but a reported alternative wouldn't go down well with Rangers fans either.

The Daily Record report that Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is again interested in purchasing the club, as it's claimed that he is 'shocked' by the club's performance this season.

Ashley has been an unpopular owner at Newcastle having overseen two relegations from the Premier League during his time at the helm, and drew the ire of Rangers fans in 2015 by attempting to use the club's Ibrox stadium as security against a £10million loan (BBC Sport).

Ashley, who owns just shy of 9% of the club, was ousted by King in 2015, but it's claimed that he is now lining up a £30million bid to finally purchase the club he has been chasing for some time.

Given the frosty relationship between Ashley and King, as well as the displeasure from fans, it seems highly unlikely that Ashley can complete a deal to take the reins at Rangers, and supporters shouldn't be too worried by the latest reports surrounding his interest.
