    Is it just me who thinks something is dodgy about him. I thought it was against the rules to own 2 clubs and he clearly does owning Newcastle and pumping money into Rangers.

    Not really following the Rangers thing too closely but it's not good news for Rangers that he's helping them, no matter how much they need the money.

    Isn't Ibrox technically his now if they can't pay him back?

    Under UEFA rules as long as Rangers and Newcastle aren't in the same competition domestically or UEFA's comps it's allowed.

    Likewise the PL rules allow it providing the club can't be in the PL, which Rangers currently can't.

    However the Scottish FA do have more rules against this, which he is in danger of breaching.

    Personally I think he's trying to get to the point where the Scottish FA either change their rules and allow Ashley to 'rescue' Rangers or they don't, he walks away and they go bust. They won't let the latter happen, imo.

    However obnoxious he seems, it can't be denied that he is an excellent business man. Sports Direct are massive and Newcastle were in a right mess when he took over. Whilst he is in it just for the money, he will eventually sell at a massive profit. Rangers have been plagued by some very dodgy people over the last couple of years - they should welcome Ashley with open arms as he is the best they have right now.

    Purely out of interest Sedge what would be the case if both clubs, for the sake of debate, were in the same European cup competition?

    I'd assume one would have to forfeit the competition, not sure if it's ever happened.

    Rangers set to sign 4/5 loan players from Newcastle.

    Cheers Sedge. Would be very interesting should that scenario ever arise to see what took place. The owner would fall fair of one and foul of the other supporter wise so a very precarious situation.
