The Scottish Daily Mail reports that Rangers midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh will be visiting a third specialist to investigate his heart issue.
Despite joining the team two years ago, Ofoborh has not played a single minute of action due to heart problems discovered when he joined from Bournemouth in 2021.
The Daily Record reported that Ofoborh is still at the Auchenhowie training ground, where he has been for some time. The midfielder has suggested that he suffered two years of mistreatment.
Rangers boss Michael Beale has said that the club has done everything it can to help Ofoborh recover from his injury.
He also confirmed that the 23-year-old will see a third specialist to get to the bottom of his heart issue that was first discovered when he joined from Bournemouth.
Although Ofoborh and Rangers unfollowed each other on social media, it does not mean that they have cut ties.
However, Ofoborh’s health is the top priority, and it remains to be seen if he has a future with the club.
It is also essential to ensure that his health and well-being are not compromised if he is cleared to play in the future.
The club will need to make a decision regarding Ofoborh’s future soon. If he is cleared to play, the team must also consider his contract’s future and the safety of all parties involved. For now, the focus must remain on Ofoborh’s health and well-being.
Reported £75m Ibrox investment deal collapses
Kyle Fox, a US businesswoman, has announced that her firm KRF Capital has pulled out of negotiations to take over Rangers Football Club. The deal’s collapse comes after nine months of negotiations, during which Fox aimed to buy a controlling stake in the club by purchasing shares from several key shareholders.
According to earlier reports in Business Insider, Fox had originally planned to invest around £75 million to acquire approximately 25% of Rangers. However, this was scaled back from an initial proposal to buy a 75% stake with an additional investment of £50 million. The reports also stated that Fox had met with former Rangers chairman Paul Murray in the previous year.
The reports on Fox’s proposal came after the failure of a previous arrangement between Dave King and fans group Club 1872, who had hoped to purchase the club’s largest stakeholder’s shares with support from fans.
The BBC has reported that Fox’s takeover proposal for Rangers has collapsed due to fierce resistance from several top officials at the club, including current chairman Douglas Park.
“Our interest was predicated on certain conditions being met – those conditions were not met,” said Fox.
“Our letter of interest included gaining anti-dilution rights protection, two board seats and access to the data room and management interviews. All were denied.”
Earlier in the year, Rangers Football Club had dropped a legal challenge against Kyle Fox and her firm.
The club had initially contested the alleged inappropriate use of copyright by Fox’s firm, but eventually withdrew the legal action.
According to the BBC report, Dave King, a South Africa-based businessman and one of Rangers’ largest shareholders, is open to selling his stake in the club.
King had voted against the re-election of current chairman Douglas Park at the most recent Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The boardroom at Rangers appears to be experiencing significant discontent, with a very public attack on several of the club’s directors via Club 1872. All of these factors suggest that there is unrest at the highest levels of the club.
Despite the discussions over a takeover of Rangers Football Club having come to a stop for now, Kyle Fox is reportedly still interested in future negotiations.
