Bury have poured cold water on suggestions they could be bought by Rangers as part of a plan for the Glasgow giants to ply their trade in England.

Reports have claimed Charles Green's consortium, who took over the Light Blues last week, have looked into the possibility of acquiring the npower League One side. The plan would then apparently be for newco Rangers to take up Bury's fixtures for the forthcoming campaign, while continuing to play their home games at Ibrox.

Responding to media reports over the last 24 hours, a statement from Bury's board of directors read: "Whilst investment into Bury Football Club is always welcome, any offer of investment will only be viewed at taking the club forward in its only one guise possible - based in the town of Bury, and as Bury Football Club."
