Finite Homomorphic Images of Groups of Finite Rank

Let π be a finite set of primes. We prove that each soluble group of finite rank contains a finite index subgroup whose every finite homomorphic π-image is nilpotent. A similar assertion is proved for a finitely generated group of finite rank. These statements are obtained as a consequence of the following result of the article: Each soluble pro-π-group of finite rank has an open normal pronilpotent subgroup.
