Rangers legend pleads for more investment

first_img1 Rangers legend Craig Moore has pleaded for more investment into his former club, so they stand a chance of returning to the top of Scottish and European football.Former skipper Moore won twelve major honours with Rangers including five league championships and a domestic treble in 2003.But the Aussie international defender admitted he had feared for the club’s future amid reports Rangers were taking a £10m loan from Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct just to stay in business.Moore, 39, said: “When I consider what Rangers have been through in recent years with the financial mess, the relegation and the general demise of the club, then I just hope that the club gets the investment that it desperately needs.“The club is in danger of going out of business which for me would seem unthinkable, but it could happen if they don’t sort this new financial crisis out quickly.“A proper investor with a long-term plan can not only restore Rangers to the pinnacle of Scottish football. but eventually bring back Champions League football to Ibrox.“So from where I stand at the moment I don’t care whether it is Mike Ashley, Dave King, Douglas Park or Joe Bloggs.“I’m not too bothered as long as the deal is right for the long term future of Rangers.“The priority for me is that the club is restored to the one that I love and hold so fondly,”Moore also played for Newcastle, departing in 2007, the summer Ashley took over at the Toon.Speaking to football networking site Network90, he added: “My departure had nothing to do with his arrival. I suffered some bad injuries over those two seasons and moved back to Australia with Brisbane.“At the time Newcastle United was in trouble and Ashley got the club back on its feet.” Craig Moore last_img read more

Soccer: Bonagee boss Moran hoping his team can show their capability

first_imgPETER MORAN SAYS that progression in the FAI Intermediate Cup means his Bonagee United players will get a chance ‘to show what they’re capable of’.Goals by Francesco Crisco and Seamus Brown fired the Dry Arch men to a 2-1 win over Fanad United at Triagh-A-Locha.They were hanging on a little in the closing stages after John McGarvey pulled one back for Fanad, just after Brown put Bonagee 2-0 up, but Moran’s side advance into the third round. “It’s fantastic for the club,” Moran said.“It puts us out there nationally now. Hopefully we will go and represent the Ulster Senior League well and do ourselves justice. It’s a platform for the players to show what they’re capable of.“We’d love to get a home tie now in the next round.”In a game of few chances, Bonagee had the edge and Moran was delighted with how his players coped. He said: “It was very windy and blow, which comes with the territory here, and we knew it would be a game of two halves. We defended superbly and kept a high line. They did the job we asked them to do.“We went to sleep and let them back into the game, but I felt that it was a fully-deserved win for us.“We were missing five players who would be pushing to start. They’ve come to play a much-improved Fanad and it’s a credit to them.”Moran hailed the impact of substitute Brown, who dinked a superb second goal for Bonagee in the 80th minute, just seconds after coming into the action.Moran said: “That’s why he played senior football. That’s why he was in England. That’s why we’ve brought him in – he can help to develop our players.” Soccer: Bonagee boss Moran hoping his team can show their capability was last modified: October 23rd, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
