Kieron Prior, who is from Salford, but whose family are from Galway, is in the process of buying a stake in Rangers. He will buy a stake of 1.4% in the next 48 hours. If he likes what he sees he will buy up to a 10% stake – which would make him the biggest shareholder in Rangers.

He is 34 years old and is wheelchair-bound as he suffers from cerebral palsy. He worked for Goldman Sachs the investment bank. He also has an IQ of 234 – which is one of the highest in the world. He has been a fan of Man Utd since he was very young.

He said that Wigan Chairman, David Whelan, was offered Man Utd for £12m 25 years ago and it is now worth £2.5 billion. He sees the same potential in Rangers.

His family is from Connemara in Galway but he claims Rangers have been his 2nd team since he was young after Man Utd.

It’s not so long since Rangers wouldn’t play Catholics till they were forced to do so by UEFA if they wanted to play in Europe. It will be strange if their biggest shareholder is a Connemara man.

The world changes very quickly these days.
