Kennedy confirms Rangers bid

Brian Kennedy has confirmed he will submit a takeover proposal for Rangers by tomorrow’s deadline – but only as a “fallback” option.

The Sale Sharks owner says he has met Rangers manager Ally McCoist and discussed the club’s situation with former Ibrox boss Graeme Souness.

The Scot said in a statement: “I hope to get something in by Friday purely as a fallback for the administrators, should the other bids fall over or not be acceptable.”
