Freddy Shepherd In Club Takeover?
With the help of the fortunes made from his involvement at Newcastle United, Freddy Shepherd could be on the brink of moving back into club ownership as part of a consortium taking over Glasgow Rangers.
Far be it for us to say whether this would be a good or bad thing for the humbled Scottish giants but this is definitely a club who have been ruined by the way modern football in the UK allows owners to repeatedly run their clubs/businesses into the ground before walking away.
The consortium is fronted by Charles Green who was previously chief executive at Sheffield United, with Freddy Shepherd and son Kenneth Shepherd both believed to be involved.
Green was involved with Paul Stretford in the Proactive Sports Management agency, with Stretford then teaming up with the Shepherds at the Triple S sports and entertainment group.
It is speculated that investment from abroad is also involved but as ever in UK football club ownership, nothing is ever seemingly straightforward.
