Sources close to US billionaire George Soros rubbish claims that he is ready to buy into Gers

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Gary Ralston writing in The Daily Record:

They insist they’ve never heard of Green, have no interest in doing business with him or any desire to invest in Rangers.

Claim Chowder from the BBC’s Chris McLaughlin only 10 days ago:

Former Rangers chief executive Charles Green has told BBC Sport he is close to raising up to £10m to invest in the Scottish Championship club.[...]

[...]One of the interested parties is Soros Fund Management and it is believed the US-based group have held talks with a senior Rangers official.

Rangers: Charles Green ‘raising £10m’ to invest in club

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

BBC Scotland’s Chris McLaughlin, fresh from his role as the Corporation’s Commonwealth Games reporter, and without a hint of irony:

Former Rangers chief executive Charles Green has told BBC Sport he is close to raising up to £10m to invest in the Scottish Championship club.

Green left the Ibrox club last year following allegations about business dealings with former owner Craig Whyte.

Now Green claims he has investors ready to stabilise the club financially.

One of the interested parties is Soros Fund Management and it is believed the US-based group have held talks with a senior Rangers official.

McLaughlin’s distinct lack of analysis of Green’s proclamations is quite worrisome.
