Sandy and James Easdale are also both former shareholders in Rangers Football Club. This news will undoubtedly come as a blow to Derby as they look for a way out of their financial troubles that have plagued the opening half of their season.
On the pitch Wayne Rooney’s men are doing fairly well all things considered. While they do remain in rooted to the bottom thanks to the 12 point deduction they received earlier in the season, they are only nine points away from a safety spot and would be a comfortable six points ahead of the drop zone without the point penalty.
This situation could definitely be turned around so long as they keep plugging away.
