Bristol Rovers chairman Nick Higgs has told ITV News West Country that there is no truth in the rumours of a company sort-out bid or approach for the club.
"I keep hearing about this so called consortium from various sources. Would somebody be kind enough to tell us who they are, as we are very curious to find out ourselves!"

Bristol City fans have expressed outrage at the price of tickets for the side's first away game back in the Championship.
The board of Bristol City's Supporters Club & Trust have decided to stay away because they think £39 is extortionate.
Nobody’s calling for a boycott, we just think it is a step too far. We think many City fans will vote likewise and choose not to go. Maybe in that way Sheffield Wednesday will get the message that this is unreasonable. After all, it will only cost Reading fans £25 when they go to Hillsborough. Where’s the sense in that?
A spokesperson for Bristol City has issued this response
Ticket prices for this fixture are set by the home club and not by Bristol City FC. We will always look to set fair prices for supporters at Ashton Gate as we look to attract as many fans along as possible to support the team.
The game will take place at Hillsborough on Saturday 8 August.
