Rangers players mull over the merger

In what is sure to be regarded as a radical step, Glasgow Rangers, the second-best football team in the whole of Scotland, are set to merge with the English Premier League side Queens Park Rangers.

Rangers, the Scottish ones, are currently deeply embroiled in a Major Financial Shenanigans (MFS), which has resulted in a criminal investigation launched today by Strathclyde Police into Craig Whyte's takeover of the club last May.

Mr Whyte bought Rangers for £1 in 2011 before they went into administration in February this year.

But all this is 'detail', and the real news is that QPR, the English 'Loftus Road' Rangers, with their distinctive blue-and-white hoops, have offered the Scots a 'Get Out Of Jail Free Card', and a more lucrative move down south.

The new Premier League club would be known as Queens Park Rangers Rangers, or QPRR, and it's thought that the changeover could be enacted with a minimum of fuss due to the similar club names, and the fact that they both play in blue.

They are also both crap.

Sources at Rangers, the Scottish ones, are thought to have signed a deal in secret last night that will mean they can escape their crisis in the stroke of a pen, although I'm not a financial expert, so I can't be sure of that.

It doesn't really matter. It's only a spoof!

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
