Simon Jordan responds on Twitter when asked if he wants to buy Rangers
By Will Butcher
Simon Jordan has revealed on Twitter that he is not interested in purchasing Rangers because of the quality of the Scottish Premiership.
Self-made millionaire Jordan, 49, was Crystal Palace’s chairman for a decade between 2000 and 2010, saving the London club from extinction and stabilising the Eagles during his tenure.
Replying to a fan on his personal Twitter account, the outspoken Jordan labelled Rangers as a “great club” but would not be interested in buying them because Scotland’s top flight is a “poor league”.

A first Scottish Premiership win during his tenure against St. Johnstone at Ibrox was followed up by a superb 6-0 thrashing of Hamilton in the Scottish Cup quarter final.
The Gers are next in action against Rodgers’ Celtic on Sunday, as they look to end a poor run of form against the Bhoys that has seen them lose all three meeting between the two this season.
