I'll save Rangers says Knights chief.

BLUE Knights figurehead Paul Murray insists he remains the man to save Rangers from liquidation.

Murray was responding after Paul Clark, of administrators Duff and Phelps, warned over the weekend that "it is certainly possible Rangers would be liquidated" when new owners take charge.

The Blue Knights, American investors Club 9 Sports and a Singapore-based group are all expected to make formal bids for the Ibrox club by tomorrow, the deadline set by the administrators before they choose a preferred bidder.

Murray, a former Rangers director, claims he is closer to an agreement to include in his consortium Ticketus, the investment firm whose controversial pounds 24.4m season-ticket deal allowed Craig Whyte to complete his takeover of the club in May last year.

And if Ticketus, who own the rights to a tranche of future season tickets at Ibrox, can be brought on board then Murray is hopeful Rangers can come out of administration with a company voluntary arrangement (CVA).

"It seems the other groups are pushing to put the club into liquidation," said Murray. "That is not what I want to do."
