Ibrox dirt continues to fly as Murray is accused

Malcolm Murray newsThe dirty war inside Ibrox has intensified with both sides of the boardroom split dishing  the dirt.

Yesterday The Herald published a damning report on the chequered business history of James and Sandy Easdale who are hoping for a seat on the board and are believed to be buying out Charles Green.

Today The Sun has hit back with alleged details of last week’s board meeting where chairman Malcolm Murray was asked to step down by fellow directors.

Against that background Ally McCoist has still to announce his first pre-contract signing with no word on the sale of season tickets- the biggest source of income for the Third Division winners.

Today’s claims against Murray are made with an external investigation on-going into links between Green and Craig Whyte and question marks over the ownership of Ibrox Stadium and Murray Park.

The Sun publishes a lengthy catalogue of complaints about Murray’s behaviour and suitability for the job of chairman.

According to the newspaper a source claimed: ”The SFA mentioned to the acting chief executive (Craig Mather) that the Rangers board situation needed addressing as the SFA understood information was leaking from the chairman.

“Staff reported Malcolm had been revealing details of the investigation following some drinks at the player of the year awards.

“Ian Hart reported he had received communications from fans alleging Malcolm had breached confidentiality by speaking to Paul Murray and also revealing detail about the investigation.

“The acting chief executive reported that the staff at the hotel where he and Malcolm had stayed knew intimate details about the acting chief executive’s remuneration discussions because Malcolm had discussed it.

“In addition, staff had heard Malcolm listening to voicemails on speakerphone while at the public breakfast table.”

It’s believed that the SFA are awaiting on the results of the club’s own investigation into links to Craig Whyte before deciding if there has been a breach of the agreement to give Sevco associate membership last July.

    So the Sun “newspaper” has seen leaked documents from the board about leaked information about Murray from SFA( the Rangers parent company) and fans. One would have thought that the best appointment they could make would be a plumber.

    • Andybhoy says:

      Agreed. It’s getting beyond farcical down at the ‘big hoose’ now. Information is leaked to prove that someone else has been leaking information. Quite ridiculous hypocrisy.

      What’s really interesting is the SFA’s involvement.

      ”The SFA mentioned to the acting chief executive (Craig Mather) that the Rangers board situation needed addressing as the SFA understood information was leaking from the chairman”

      Lets be clear what’s been said here, the SFA are telling the club to plug a leak in their boardroom. Why are the SFA so concerned about leaks emanating from the Ibrox boardroom, how is this particular matter any of their business, and why are they even involving themselves in this messy boardroom power struggle in the first place

      Could it be the leaked information concerned the ‘independent investigation’ into Charles Green’s links with Craig Whyte and his acquiring of the liquidated club’s assets, and could it be this information is as damaging to the SFA as it is to the new club. Whatever is going on the SFA’s role in this affair seems highly inappropriate.

      It was believed Murray wanted an open and transparent investigation into these matters no matter what information came to light to avoid accusations of a cover-up. It now looks like Murray is being buried along with the truth.

    “It’s believed that the SFA are awaiting on the results of the club’s own investigation into links to Craig Whyte before deciding if there has been a breach of the agreement to give Sevco associate membership last July.”

    Seriously??? Do courts wait for acccused murderers, etc. to conduct ‘their own investigations’ before passing judgement?
    Forgive the hyperbole but this is completely indicative of the toothless, old boy’s network that is the SFA. Aye, because any internal investigation carried out by Sevco Ltd is going to be totally transparent and honest!

    JIST BANTER YI UNNERSTON

  • Sweeney Hughes says:

    The sfa are worried about leaks because they are up to their feckin necks (knees?) in the entire thing, corruption, lying, thieving, cheating, sectarianism, racism, bent refs, bent officials, apartheit signing policies, cover-ups, financial misconduct, misappropriation of monies, rioting fans, sectarian merchandising, from dougie dougie to jim farry and beyond.
    They’ve been in cahoots with these scumbag for a 100yrs, how many sfa reps were present for the closed door bigotfest in the San Siro in 2005?
    Hopefully the corrupt house of cards they have built will colapse round about them, and the sweetest of ironies will be that the huns will ultimately sacrifice every one of their ‘friends’ as they struggle to survive and the penny will finally drop that at the hunnery there is no such thing as friendship, dignity or integrity, only the self-preservation of the sectarian bigoted racist institution that is/was oldco/newco rangers.

    Hell slap it into them.

      Hi there Sweeney

      Delighted to read your post.

      Way back 3 years past, I think, that what you have said was near enough word for word what I said when writing for the Celtic Hub.

      You have once again brought into question the despicable conduct, not only of the now dead instituation, but also the the failure of the so called football authorities to remain hidden when an explanation of that failure is now required.

      My article a number of days ago, was about why EUFA & FIFA have not intervened.
      We know that the Shocking Scottish Media will, (despite the article in today’s Sun) continue to either protect them or will not comment on their problems.

      This is the way things work in this small minded, bigoted country of ours.

      Thanks again, really enjoyed reading your post.

      • Sweeney Hughes says:

        No offence Joratim, but if this story about leaks only came to light this week (end) and the huns only liquidated at the start of last season and only went into admin the Christmas before last (ish), how could you have posted ‘near enough word for word’ what I’ve posted three years ago?

      Like!

  • Sweeney Hughes says:

    Ps. In my opinion.

  • edward says:

    Does anyone expect the SFA to cancel Sevco” s associate membership .They will never do it .There is not much doubt in anybody”s mind that Green and Whyte were involved in the Sevco purchase of Oldco.The simple fact is that such a situation is not the one establishment wants and will make sure there are enough smoke screens out there to be confusing enough to do their right thing and give Sevco any benefit of the slightest doubt.

  • mick says:

    the rangers fans should buy the shares from green 50k fans 60 pound each seat on the board then they would know the truth get to it fans

  • Sweeney Hughes says:

    Rangers are dead Mick, liquidated.
    A messy affair by all accounts.

    Joratim, cheers. Disgusted at the way this sick sordid showr have been allowed to drag every aspect of Scottish society through the gutter they created.
    As Edward refers to re associate membership that was illegal in the first place, the biggest example of just how deep the corruption goes,for me, was the Nimo Smith kidology.

    Scotland has been made not so much ‘the laughing stock’ of Europe by these disgusting peepo, but in my experience, made to look like one ugly twisted society.

    Maybe it’s just.

    Maybe the huns have done us all favour by doing a ‘Trainspoting’ number on the shortbread tin ideal of Scottish life by laying bare what a nasty dirty little country it can be.

    To paraphrase the late Ian Archer, not only would Scotland be a better place without the existence of rangers, it would have been a far better place if they had never existed at all.

  • Thomas Haverstock says:

    Just a another day at the office Every will worke out They will see to that all right

  • Rodger the Dodger says:

    So the corruption at the manky mob is being investigated by the manky mob themselves??
    that will get to the core of the corruption and clear up any doubt about what has been happening and will put trans-parity on the matter so nothing to worry about folks, it will all be revealed and fair play and decency and honesty will prevail.
    HA HA HA HA HA HA GUFFAW
