Exclusive – Ashley would be good for Rangers and for Scottish football, claims Brazil

first_imgAlan Brazil is backing Mike Ashley’s plan to buy Rangers.The Newcastle United chief is reportedly ready to sell the St James’ Park club in order to be allowed to take charge of the Ibrox club, something he is currently banned from doing by the Scottish Football Association as he can’t own two clubs.And talkSPORT’s Breakfast show host insists it would be a good move for Rangers, and for Scottish football as a whole.Brazil said: “It’s none of my business because I’m from the other side of Glasgow – Celtic – but with the shenanigans that have gone on at Rangers over the last few years, if Mike was to come in and sort all the debt out and get a Rangers man in to run the club than they would be so much better off, that I am sure of.“He could buy the club, get rid of all the people Rangers fans are sick of now, clear it out and put a Rangers man in there to run it. And with his business brain as well, do you know what, it would give Celtic a kick up the backside.“They would suddenly start thinking, ‘OK, we can’t be selling any more [players] now, we have to think about buying for next year’. It would be healthy for Scottish football.”last_img read more
