In Scotland today, reports are circulating that the debt-ridden Glasgow Rangers have been bought by bitter rivals Glasgow Celtic.
On the clubs official website Chairman David Murray has stated; 'this is in the best interests of not only Glasgow Rangers but Celtic too, and the move can bring Scottish football into the limelight once again'
Rangers, who were in £30 million of debt will now be known as the Blue Hoops. A spokesman for Celtic confirmed that an offer has been put forward but could not comment on if the actual purchase had gone through.
Anna Galsty, head of marketing has released the following statement on the Rangers official website;
'I would like to remind our loyal Rangers fans that there will be no change in direction for the club with regards to image. Rumours circulating that the club will wear green shorts and socks, with a blue top are unfounded and would not pass our strict Fashion Design Guru, Cock Wan. Whatever happens at RFC, we will be the first to assure you that blue will be the colour of this club, as green would just clash'
The Scottish Premier League, who were rejected from joining the Premier League last season because in the words of the FA 'the Scottish league is shit', kick off the new season this August.
