A Saudi sheik who showed an interest in buying Rangers Football Club has been asked to reveal what school he went to.

Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, owner of the Abu Dhabi United Group and already in ownership of Manchester City FC, was shocked when the cash strapped Glasgow club agreed to discuss the sale but only after he answered a series of questions relating to his education.

Zayed was also asked to shake hands with the current owners prior to a deal after being asked whether he had attended any schools beginning with the initials "St".

Spiralling wages at the club have put the Ibrox outfit £21.89 in the red.

It is thought that Rangers is looking for a buyer to help fund Nacho Novo's £36.75 weekly pay demand.

It's hoped a squad sell off during the January transfer window could raise up to £150. Or as much as £175 if Kris Boyd is included in the deal.

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