Reading now: 886

A consortium aiming to take over Albion Rovers and rename the club Shamrock Rovers Coatbridge to 'tap into the town's Irish heritage' has called on the current Cliftonhill board to resign after overseeing the end of the club's 120-years in senior football.

Rovers were relegated from the SPFL last week after losing the Pyramid play-off final to Spartans and will now play in the Lowland League next season.

But it is a situation the 'Project Phoenix' consortium claim would never have happened had Rovers not rejected an initial takeover bid last summer.

The consortium still aspires to take control of Rovers and rebrand the club to reflect what it believes is the heritage, history and culture of the town's demographics, as part of a multi-million pound plan.
