Rangers FC is an institution in itself given the history and lineage of the
club. Yes I am looking at acquiring a stake in this Scottish institution as I

base, a solid home and heritage that dates back over 100 years, all of which
make for great long-term value. I have thus initiated talks with a couple of
shareholders to understand the situation on ground and am keen that these
discussions lead to fruition. Having said that these discussions are still at a
very preliminary stage.”

paltry 24p they were not long ago, and with the comment that the overall
institution is undervalued, Modi clearly sees an opportunity here.
Whether this will happen in time
for the EGM is yet another question.
