Former director Paul Murray has confirmed that his Blue Knights consortium are finalising an offer for Rangers in partnership with supporters groups and Ticketus.

The London-based financial firm emerged as a surprise backer for the consortium, who are one of several interested parties holding talks with the club`s administrators Duff and Phelps.

Ticketus also had a key role to play in current owner Craig Whyte's takeover of the Scottish champions last May.

A statement issued on behalf of the company confirmed: "The "Blue Knights", led by Paul Murray, today confirm that they are finalising an offer for Rangers Football Club in partnership with fans' representatives (from the Rangers Supporters Assembly, the Rangers Supporters Association and the Rangers Supporters Trust) and Ticketus."
