Glasgow Rangers, as well as the other 41 clubs in Scotland’s top four leagues, could soon be about to receive a significant windfall according to recent reports.
There have been reports from the Daily Record that James Anderson, a Hearts benefactor, is prepared to invest millions into Scottish football to help those in the lower leagues survive in these current difficult circumstances. He has links to Ann Budge, the Hearts owner, but his potential donation will apparently have no strings attached, even though Budge herself was the one who brought him to the table.
The initial discussions between the SPFL and the businessman have taken place and Neil Doncaster, the governing body’s chief, says that talks have been positive at this stage.
Would you like to James Anderson invest in Scottish football?
Some ‘Gers fans have been reacting to this news and it is fair to say that there appears to be some scepticism from the supporters. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts – one fan called the situation “baffling” – and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below:
Just when you think the @spfl wasn’t corrupt enough. 🤦🏻♂️

The SPFL will find a way to mess this up. Open goal and they will sky it over the bar https://t.co/qP04kRdLIY

How easily Scottish football can be bought! The title is not recognised in f they refuse to relagate hearts and still claim the final positions mean something it’s makes our game the biggest laughing stock in world football

So the director of the spfl has to rely on a member club to find support for his failures?. Why is he being paid so much money?.
