New Rangers Crisis – Two Directors, Paul Murray and Barry Scott, walk away

STATEMENT from Ibrox incoming…here we go (for Ten in a Row)…

“RANGERS International Football Club PLC (RIFC) notify the resignation of two directors, Mr Paul Murray and Mr Barry Scott.

“Paul has been a director since March 2015 and played an important role at that time in helping oust the previous Board and restore the Club to the hands of those who have its best interests at heart.

“Paul has served with distinction as a director since that time and all at Rangers are very grateful for his efforts. We look forward to welcoming him again as a supporter.

“Barry joined the Board more recently and his enthusiasm and drive were welcome. The Board knows it will continue to enjoy his support and appreciates the commitment he has shown to the Club.”

Dave King is under pressure from the Court of Session and the Takeover Panel to make the offer for all remaining shares – has he got the means to do so or is he even willing to put his hand in his pocket to fund this?

Graeme Murty was yesterday sacked after his role in the three Beautiful Sundays – after the second game at Hampden, which Celtic won 4-0, they were revolting in their dressing room.

Unbelievably King allowed Murty to take the team to Celtic Park at the weekend and they were lucky to get away with a 5-0 defeat.

Steven Gerrard is in Rome at the moment, he may choose to seek down to the Vatican and say a wee prayer for what will be in-store for him if he takes a job working for Dodgy Dave King…

Maybe Stevie G would be better pressing this…

Beautiful Sunday
