David Murray claimed in court today that he wasn’t aware that former Rangers Chief Executive Martin Bain had a 39 month notice period!

Bain, a former male model, rose through the ranks at Ibrox under the wing of Murray with his appointment as Chief Executive effectively ending the role of former secretary Campbell Ogilvie.

Murray and Bain worked hand in hand on a series of stunning scoops that kept Rangers (IL) competing with Celtic for honours and more importantly the annual Champions League windfall which kept the wolf from the door.

This morning at the Craig Whyte fraud trial Murray admitted that he had no idea of the notice period of the Chief Executive that he had appointed.

The extent of the bad blood between Murray and Dave King was laid bare as the South African based criminal questioned the sale of the club to Whyte.

In May 2011 Murray sold his controlling stake in Rangers to Whyte for £1.

The former billionaire has been accused of breaking a number of promises but this morning the trial heard otherwise.

Despite not knowing the notice period on Bain’s contract Murray had background details of the footballing allegiances and school background of every sports journalist in Scotland.
