Alex McLeish and former Rangers director Donald Muir linked to Charlton Athletic takeover – with ex-Scotland boss watching EFL Trophy tie

Talk that Alex McLeish is part of a takeover bid for Charlton Athletic has been fuelled as he attended his second match in a matter of days at The Valley.

The former Scotland boss was pictured in the directors’ box along with ex-Rangers director Donald Muir on Saturday as the Addicks won 1-0 against Oldham Athletic.

And McLeish was back in SE7 on Tuesday night to watch the EFL Trophy defeat to Oxford United.

Barnet boss Mark McGhee was also sat in the same row as McLeish.

McLeish has been out of management since being sacked by Egyptian side Zamalek in May 2016.

He is thought to be in contention for the Scotland job once again but the fact he was at such a low-profile fixture in midweek will only add to speculation that he is part of a consortium looking to buy the South London club.

Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet has already stated he is ready to sell and has put the block on any incoming transfer deals – much to the fury of boss Karl Robinson.

Muir was appointed to the Rangers board in 2009 by the Lloyds Banking Group and tasked with driving down the debt at Ibrox.
