The 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.
