Former Bradford City owner Mark Lawn is keen to take over the Bradford Bulls following the club going into administration.
Lawn previously tried to acquire the Bulls twice in the past four years. He sold the football side Bradford City in 2014.
“I would have to have the backing of the fans but I’m a Bradford lad and I don’t want to see any Bradford club go down,” Lawn told The Bradford Telegraph & Argus.
“If I can help, I will and I understand that if I took on the Bulls I would get criticism. Not everyone likes me because I call a spade a spade.
“You need your fans behind you but there just seems to be a disconnect between the fans and the owner at the Bulls.
“You can’t go on not paying players, especially in rugby league when you put your body on the line. How are you going to do that if you can’t pay your mortgage?
“My late wife was a big Bulls fan and I always said if I could get involved and save them, then I would do.”
