It seems some of the SPL clubs don't want Rangers back in their top flight. Understandable I suppose ... it gives them a better chance of glory. But what ...
... do you think of the idea of having 'Scotland's Finest' in the English league?
Reports on Thursday claimed Charles Green's consortium, who took over the Light Blues last week, have looked into the possibility of acquiring the npower League One side.
The plan would then apparently be for newco Rangers to take up Bury's fixtures for the forthcoming campaign, while continuing to play their home games at Ibrox.
A statement from Bury's board of directors: "Whilst investment into Bury Football Club is always welcome, any offer of investment will only be viewed at taking the club forward in its only one guise possible - based in the town of Bury, and as Bury Football Club.
"Bury FC is a proud historical club and, as such, proudly represents the town, community, people and, above all, supporters of Bury.
"The directors of Bury FC place the integrity and morality of the club, and football as a whole, way above and beyond any possible financial gain and, as such, wish to reassure all Shakers fans of this fact."
