Ng welcomes ‘new chapter’ for Rangers
SINGAPORE - Agence France-PresseSingapore businessman Bill Ng welcomed a “new chapter” for Glasgow Rangers despite being foiled in his bid to buy the embattled Scottish football club.
Ng, accepting defeat in his takeover attempt, congratulated the consortium led by former Sheffield United chief executive Charles Green, whose offer was accepted by Rangers’ administrators.
“We would like to sincerely congratulate Mr. Charles Green and his consortium for winning the bid,” Ng said in a statement late on May 15. “We believe that they will put in their greatest effort to create a whole new chapter for Rangers,” he added.
Ng urged Rangers fans to “allow Mr. Green’s consortium to be given some time to get Rangers back on track and also to emerge as a stronger club.” “We would be delighted to share our ideas and also to support Mr Green in making Rangers fit and strong again!” Ng said.
