I felt very optimistic when seeing the statement just after midnight. However after picking up the Herald a couple of things have dampened my mood:
Buttivant is still very much in the running with backing from Europe and the USA. He proposes to make a firm offer to administrators later this week.
Also - Former chiefs Keith Todd and Sir Roy Gardner, who have struck a deal in principle with Mr Brent over disputed mortgage debts, are also understood to remain in talks relating to a potential seperate bid.
I'm sure it won't be long before it's available online.
On that sad note I'm off for a well earned kip.
