Rangers mystery investor revealed as real estate mogul Stuart Gibson

The Japan-based businessman was in Glasgow last week to meet the current Ibrox regime as Dave King prepares to step

 

Property funding expert Stuart Gibson is on the verge of ploughing millions into Rangers and becoming the most influential figurehead in the Ibrox boardroom.

Record Sport can reveal the Japan-based businessman was in Glasgow last week to meet with the current regime as he edges closer to completing a deal which will see Dave King step away from his position as chairman.

Paisley born Gibson has made his fortune in the Far East since moving there in 1999 and his real estate company ESR boasts of having more than £1.5billion worth of assets under its management.

It’s understood the life-long Rangers supporter was initially attracted to the idea of investing in the club around six months ago after discussions with current director George Taylor, a senior investment banker with Morgan Stanley, based in Hong Kong.

Gibson has secretly attended a number of games during that time including a Betfred Cup semi final win over Hearts in November and the defeat to celtic in December’s final.

Gibson had also planned to be at Ibrox for Sunday’s Old Firm derby before it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ahh,

Lets see what happens.  

If I had £15m I would put £ 14m into Rangers.   I would still be loaded.

If I had £150m I would plough £140m into Rangers.   I would still be super loaded.

Most of us would do the same.

Now £1.5 billion from a life long Rangers fan?

Fairy tales can come true?

Not get excited, in fact the opposite.  No football often brings out this sort of story.

I have no doubts about the company.   My concern is they are So big that if they, let's say, throw 20m at us and see no value in it after a few years, they'd just go "fuck this, ditch that lot and recoup what we can". 

Think the last 8 yrs has made me a cynical cunt tbh. 

You mean like a MA scenario?

 I don't think you're cynical. The club must realise that fans will check him out after what we've gone through
