"David Somers, the Rangers chairman, pleaded with Mike Ashley’s lawyer not to make a hash of the Newcastle United owner’s bid for control of the Ibrox club because he would be dumped if a rival takeover succeeded, it has emerged.

Evidence of Somers’ frantic attempt to keep the process alive in the face of opposition from other directors is revealed in an email from the chairman and copied to Sandy Easdale, chairman of Rangers’ football board, and his brother James, a member of the plc board.

In it, Somers admits that he and James Easdale were in a minority on the Rangers plc board over the question of Ashley’s designs on the club"

This isn't just about Somers though, it goes deeper.

It's possible to be too paranoid, but the convenience of the leak - added to the lack of confidence in Somers at the AGM - makes me mighty suspicious as to where this leak has come from.

 

Yes of course

I very much see what you are getting at but the e-mail involves more than just Somers.

 

Nor do I think this would be a route of his choice.

Noising up shareholders at the AGM, yes.
