Karl Robinson is unaware of rumours linking former Rangers boss Alex McLeish to a potential Charlton takeover. 

Yesterday, news broke of McLeish leading a consortium with ex-Gers director Donald Muir to buy the Addicks from unpopular owner Roland Duchatelet.

The Scot, who also managed Birmingham and Aston Villa, has been in the directors’ box for Charlton’s last two home games.

When asked if he knew anything about McLeish’s interest in Charlton, boss Robinson told News Shopper: “Yeah, you’ve told me about it! I know Alex, we have the same agent so I’ve had conversations with him before.

“I know he’s been at the games. I know there are two or three other consortiums interested. I don't know who they are, though.

“If what you're saying is right, the other guy is the Rangers man, Muir, so when you get people who've been at an iconic football club where if we think it’s hard work here, imagine working at Rangers - that is intense.

“So automatically, people will know who they are. He’s managed [Charlton assistant] Lee Bowyer so it’s not like we don't know him.

“But we’re neutral on it until he or she or they become our boss. Remember when they do, it’s because they want to get this football club back where it belongs.”
