Bury chairman Brian Fenton insists there has been no contact between his own club and Rangers following claims the Scottish giants were poised to launch a takeover bid for the npower League One outfit.

National newspaper reports on Thursday morning suggested the Light Blues would look to take up Bury's fixtures in England's third tier next term, continuing to play their home games at Ibrox, before a club statement from the Shakers offered a firm rebuttal.

Despite a takeover by Charles Green's consortium last week Rangers' ongoing financial strife means their Scottish Premier League status remains in severe doubt, but Fenton told Press Association Sport: "There's been no contact whatsoever."
