Aberdeen Steak Houses Group has three options for rescue from administration.

The Independent On Sunday says they are sale as a going concern, the disposal of individual leases or a rescue by Ali Salih, the Turkish majority owner, who was forced to appoint BDO Stoy Hayward as administrator last Monday.

Aberdeen has received interest from a venture capitalist with a new management team to take over the Aberdeen and Angus brands. The administrator has already received several offers from bar and restaurant companies for individual leases.
