A whole host of Derby County fans are buzzing on Twitter following Rob Dorsett’s takeover update.
The Rams are still in administration as they look for a buyer to take over from Mel Morris, who has splashed a fair amount of cash at the club in return for very little success and failure to secure promotion to the Premier League.
Will Derby County be relegated?
Former Rangers shareholders Sandy and James Easdale were leading a consortium interested in buying the Rams, but according to Dorsett, that is no longer the case, with the pair claiming: ‘We feel the timelines set out were unworkable for us to fairly value the club with so many issues to cover,’ and have ultimately removed their interest.
A lot of Derby fans on Twitter are happy to see the pair remove their interest in buying the club.
What have these Derby fans been saying?
“would it really be a good idea for DCFC to replace Mel Morris who didn’t pay HMRC with someone who went to prison for 27 months for tax evasion, think this is good news for DCFC, we need to stay clean now and sustainable”
“Won’t lose sleep over that”
It appears clear that these Derby fans are happy to see the Easdale brothers cool their interest in buying the club – and this could be down to the fact they have a murky past.
Sandy Easdale, one of the brothers, was sentenced to prison back in 1997 ‘after stolen computer parts were discovered in his scrapyard and a UK-wide VAT fraud was uncovered’, as reported by The Scotsman, but that criminal record did not appear to stop him looking to invest in the EFL club.
