Two companies featuring the name Glasgow Rangers have been officially registered by a man based in Buckinghamshire.

Glasgow Rangers Football Club Limited and Glasgow Rangers Limited were registered with Companies House.

Their sole director is Gerard Moran. He has not responded to requests for further information.

The registrations show no evidence of a connection with the current management at the Ibrox club.

Rangers finances have been under scrutiny in recent months, with some speculation the club could be placed in administration by its main shareholder and creditor Craig Whyte.

Last week former director Donald McIntyre won his legal bid to have £300,000 of the club's assets frozen pending a breach of contract case.

Rangers' former chief executive Martin Bain has also had £480,000 of cash ring-fenced.

More than £2m of the club's money is currently frozen in a separate tax dispute with HM Revenue and Customs.
