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!

He was also to blame for 9 in a row Laudrup Gazza Souness and Smith

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

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 .

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?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

Thinkaboutit

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.
