Shakers hit out at buy-out rumours
Bury have issued a statement dismissing reports they could be bought out by Rangers in order to get the club into the English leagues.
While the Gers wait to discover whether they will be able to play in the SPL next season, it has been suggested that Charles Green has been investigating all options, including buying out Bury. The plan would be for newco Rangers to take up the Shakers fixtures for the forthcoming season, while continuing to play their home games at Ibrox. However the reports have not gone down well with Bury who have dismissed talk and say they would never let such a deal happen. The statement read: "Whilst investment into Bury Football Club is always welcome, any offer of investment will only be viewed at taking the club forward in its only one guise possible - based in the town of Bury, and as Bury Football Club. "Bury FC is a proud historical club and, as such, proudly represents the town, community, people and, above all, supporters of Bury. "The directors of Bury FC place the integrity and morality of the club, and football as a whole, way above and beyond any possible financial gain and, as such, wish to reassure all Shakers fans of this fact."
