Honestly don't know what to make of David Murray and his interest in the club?
Still find it hard to forgive and forget over the last 7 years and no matter what we all say Mr Murray was to blame no matter if he says he was duped!


1.) 08 Mar 2018 20:37:27
He was also to blame for 9 in a row Laudrup Gazza Souness and Smith

2.) 08 Mar 2018 22:08:19
Agree Broxi but putting the club nearly out of business is simply unforgivable and have you forgotten that?

3.) 08 Mar 2018 22:15:41
If we had brought in one or two players after we got the nine in a row we could
have made it ten, too many were by their sell by date .
Maybe that's when David Murray realised we were in the rubbish!
Can't fault the guy for his backing but got to query his management .

4.) 09 Mar 2018 05:02:55
Pretty sure there was at least 4 signings made after 9 in a row and Walter smith said later on there were too many signings made at once which hurt us. Plus was it not David Holmes who signed souness?

5.) 09 Mar 2018 05:09:46
In 1997 we signed Lorenzo amoruso, Marco negri, rino gattuso and jonas thern going for 10 so come on Brian-p

6.) 09 Mar 2018 06:45:48
What a load of nonsense, first Murray had a lot on his plate at the time with his other businesses and Rangers owed just £19 million but when you ain't got it you ain't got it so he sold us for £1 to a guy who nearly put us out of the game second we brought in at least 4 QUALITY signings after 9NAR so the first 4 posts are questionable at best.

7.) 09 Mar 2018 08:49:21
Arthur Numan, Giovanni Van Bronckhorst, Michael Mols and Ronald De Boer after 9 in a row for a start.

8.) 09 Mar 2018 10:13:03
The signings we made in lead up to going for 10 in a row were great signings, problem was 3 of them struggled with injury and Rino was a raw talent and was not the type of player to win us games. If Negri had continued his scoring exploits we would have walked the league.

I hate how Murray's tenure at Ibrox ended but the guy gave most of us the best memories of our lives.

9.) 09 Mar 2018 10:57:16
The reason we never won ten in a row was because smith said he was leaving at the end off the season in stead of staying focused on winning the league. And all the players heads went down.

10.) 09 Mar 2018 11:23:23
Conveniently missing out a season there, Rick.

11.) 09 Mar 2018 11:32:48
Did negri not score 25-30 goals before Jan? It was amazing back then.

12.) 09 Mar 2018 12:35:11
Murray had huge pressure put on him by the banks to get rid of Rangers, his metal business was in trouble like a lot of others during the crash, we had £17 mill of debts and had just won the league we were bringing the debt down and still winning, I lived through the glory years and never heard one fan complain, we had player who were world class and those who say Murray didn’t put money in Bollocks he underwrote share issues he funded players through his business empire his heart was in the right place, EBTs were legal at that time and legal advice was sought, I think the mistake was it took us to long to realise the tax man was after the people on EBTs but if Mr Murray wants back in which I still doubt I’d have him with open arms but I think this is just paper talk

13.) 09 Mar 2018 16:24:15

Sorry but your wrong about Murray. He borrowed money from the bank using his other businesses as insurance and didn’t put any of his own money into the club like he said he did, he was one of the biggest benefactors of the EBT scheme and also took millions out of the club through various of his businesses getting contracts in the club e. g catering and Steel work. As for the I was duped nonsense he was warned by the then board that Whyte didn’t have the money and was strongly advised not to sell to him ‘tis was ignored and he sold it anyway. The reason that no one complained during the successful years is that he was trusted by the support a trust which he abused. He also had other legal advice regarding the danger of the EBT scheme but chose to ignore it.

14.) 09 Mar 2018 18:16:51
Arthur, his money or his companies money or indeed banks, it was him who ultimately sanctioned it. the contracts his companies won went throw bidding processes. add to general recession in steel and collapse of sky tv contract we were in trouble. david murray was forced to sell by the bank, they wanted their money and didn't care if it was the end for rangers

15.) 09 Mar 2018 20:01:01
No Murray didn’t care either and sold it to Whyte when he was being told not too. He had always said he would only sell to someone with the clubs interest at heart which clearly wasn’t the case. To make excuses for what he did is pathetic and there was no justification for what he did. Let’s be clear Murray didn’t take that much of a hit with all this and his lifestyle and wealth still remained in tact

16.) 09 Mar 2018 21:50:21
Murray is a very shrewd business man and I do agree that wee whitey never duped him at all however Murray did chase a dream and gave us loads of success and memories this shouldn't be forgotten! I personally feel he got in too deep and used wee whitey as an out

17.) 09 Mar 2018 22:33:08
Jyf, we have just owed 18 or 19m at the time he sold us but everyone was fully aware of the impending big tax case. To suggest he was duped by Whyte is complete nonsense and if he didn't bother doing his homework on him then that's simply not good enough, the SFA were also to blame there re fit and proper person. Murray knew what was coming and didn't want it happening on his watch. EBTs may have been legal when they used them, but to allow the club to fall into the hands of criminals was unforgivable.

18.) 10 Mar 2018 07:05:41
I think Murray is a charlatan yes he gave us many trophy laden years but at what cost our pride our dignity he ran our club in to the ground and played the I was duped card I'm sorry but it's a no from me

19.) 10 Mar 2018 10:55:25
When Murray famously said 'For every fiver C#^%ic spend I will spend a tenner' what he meant was Lloyds Bank will spend a tenner. Those years were worth it though.

Not sure going back to him would be the way ahead now though.

Like Murty as a guy but Clarke and his Killie side should him up! It really is a struggle to watch and change is required!


1.) 17 Mar 2018 17:29:44
Clarke has won more points in his time at Kilmarnock than Murty has in his time with Rangers this season. Clarke has had no money to spend compared to Murty. Surely this has put paid to Murty being new Manager. Clarke has shown him and us up again. He should be our next Manager



14 Mar 2018 08:03:01
The problem I think we all have is Morales thinks he's better than he actually is?
There is no doubt he is not a bad wee player but will never hit the top leagues in Europe. His attitude at being substituted in most games is not great after having stinkers and the miss at the weekend was indefensible! Giving the choice long term most Gers fans would surely take Cummings over Morelos all day long? We have a boy in Cummings who wants to play for the club and let's build at team round him! 🇬🇧.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 10:37:52
where did you get that drivel post from, not one of your points too many gers fans will agree with, if we had beat them on sunday or got a draw you would not be on here posting that nonsence

2.) 14 Mar 2018 11:06:27
Absolute rubbish Cummings is not the player Morelos is yes he misses a few sitters but he’s top goal scorer, the work he does for the team is immense he bullied that Celtic defence all day, he’s young and will get better you give the attitude you think he doesn’t want to play for us well why did he sign a new contract on Fri, Cummings isn’t a bad player but he is never the team player of Morelos he would always be my first pick

3.) 14 Mar 2018 12:17:10
Why did he sign a contract extension? Think about it, thinkaboutit.
The obvious answer would be for the undoubted wage increase. Secondly, players often sign contract extensions before leaving as a favour to the club to get them a bit of extra money on the deal when they sell him. Unless, of course you believe that we did actually turn down a £10m offer for him.

4.) 14 Mar 2018 13:02:06
Sorry I can't agree with you at all Yately.
I like Cummings and would like to see us sign him permanently for us but I actually see him more as a squad player.

I've never had any problems with players being visibly unhappy at being substituted, it shows how much they want to play. His missing sitters is a little worrying though.

Can I ask why you think he believes he is better than he is?
There are couple of players in our squad that I believe have rampant egos but Morelos isn't on of them.

5.) 14 Mar 2018 14:45:16
I actually agree with Yately here, because Cummings would do anything to get into that starting line-up, whereas Morelos would do anything for a big move away from Ibrox.

Time will tell I suppose and STYAB is right, why would Morelos sign an extension other than more wages and to get us more money when he eventually moves on in the summer. We are a mere stepping stone.

6.) 14 Mar 2018 16:26:55
The problem is truebluesotrue we never drew or won on Sunday!

7.) 14 Mar 2018 18:15:07
what a load of nonsense, what's wrong with being upset at coming of, what's wrong at wanting to better yourself or get best wages you possible can. why would rangers offer a new contract with higher salry if they didn't think he was an asset. cummins is a finisher i agree but he doesn't do all the other stuff that moroles does. for me he starts before anyone else and eithe cummins plays alongside or comes off the bench and sorry i have a feeling murty agrees too.

8.) 14 Mar 2018 20:42:42
Morelos needs to improve his chance conversion for sure but no one can write the wee man off, he’s still very likely to finish top goalscorer this season!



11 Mar 2018 16:49:24
Morales is not a bad wee player but I have doubts he will ever play at the highest level? His heading ability and finishing is not god enough and instead of putting his foot through the ball today he tries to toe poke it? # SHOCKING.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 17:16:31
If he had buried his chances in the last 2 old firm games rangers would be level on points right now



11 Mar 2018 15:41:06
We did make a game of it today but every time they crossed the half way line your heart was in your mouth! They probably just shaded it but we certainly looked a lot better and probably suffered when big Bates went of as Cordoso is dreadful at best😭.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 15:53:28
We could have done with a natural sitting midfielder as well as they seemed to get space between our midfield and defence, need better killer instinct at other end too

2.) 11 Mar 2018 15:57:32
We have made progress this season compared to last year, Murty is getting there bit by bit. We need to sharpen up in the box and get earlier balls in, too many passes across the pitch when we're crying out for someone to take a chance and shoot. If Murty gets the job in the summer then he must sign central defenders, Alves and Cardoso just haven't got it for Scottish football. Once we stop giving away avoidable goals at the back the rest of the team will look more solid going forwards. Onwards and upwards Bears, let's do 'em in the cup, nothing to lose now!

3.) 11 Mar 2018 15:59:22
Am sure Bates would have made a difference
but hopefully everyone will be fit and up for
it for the semi we are getting closer so that
is a step in the right direction
