The SMSM never fails to amaze me. Scott Burns’ and his editor have the audacity to publish the following as an exclusive:
“The former chairman stepped down and sold his Ibrox shareholding for £1 to Craig Whyte in 2011. But it’s understood Murray is weighing up a move to buy back into the club. He could buy out existing shareholders or try to muscle in on the upcoming share issue – if the current board give him the go-ahead. Rangers are set to announce a share issue but it is unlikely to be a public flotation.
The move was passed at the club’s last AGM, but shares would only be offered to existing shareholders and preferred purchasers. Current chairman Dave King may be reluctant to allow Murray to buy into the club again. The pair had an uneasy relationship when King lost millions when he initially invested under Murray first time around. It could all come down to the level of investment Murray would be prepared to offer.
The 66-year-old’s time at Rangers was tarnished by the way he departed. The sale to Whyte saw the club go into liquidation in 2012. Rangers had to start again in Scotland’s bottom tier before being taken over by Charles Green and his consortium.Many blame Murray for selling out to Whyte in the first instance although he claimed he had been duped.”
I exclusively revealed this months ago. Has it taken this long for Burns to scroll through my articles? He evidently did not learn anything in his voyage of discovery. Is it any wonder that Trinity Mirror are eyeing up Burns’ beleaguered title and that his P45 will soon be in the post?
Rangers are in the final throes of liquidation. They did not start again in Scottish football’s bottom tier. An entirely new club was formed viz The Rangers Football Club Limited, formerly Sevco Scotland Ltd , and was shoehorned into the SFL. There is no Rangers. Burns is more than a dollar shy and a day late. He is the mark in a Continuation three card trick.
Sir Bribe & Lie misses the limelight. He paid a $1m cash bribe to be the big swinging dick at Ibrox. It was a personal triumph for the boy who was sniggered at when his tax-evading father was sent down for two years and he had to leave Fettes in humiliating ignominy.
Murray misses his calling card. What true blue mason could resist a free nosebag and a skinful of malt from the comfort of an Ibrox box? If one needs planning permission Murray just passes the port. Need to get your leg over? Leave it to David as being the Chairman of Rangers Lite is the ultimate aphrodisiac. Gold-diggers will form an orderly queue in Royal Exchange Square for a bite at Rogano’s and afters at Malmaison or One Devonshire Gardens.
So who is going to stop the modern-day David Van Horne from subverting Scottish football one more time? Our ursine chums in the guise of The Witches Of Eastwick? They are in over their heads. They would be afternoon pussy in David’s hands.
What about Career Criminal King? Having paid £5m for the privilege of Sir Bribe & Lie laundering £20m of the South African’s exchequer’s money, he knows that Murray drives a hard bargain. It would be the perfect out for the cold-shouldered and contemptible spiv. I am of course referring to King although one could understand any confusion as they are both cut from the same cloth. A cloth infested with bacillus anthracis.
The criminal spiv is dead! Long live the criminal spiv!
What about the SFA? Would their faces follow their ties into the soup course as they ducked out? Indubitably. He only cheated his way to 17-20 titles but there’s nothing lost that is lost to a friend, right?
If this mendacious criminal bastard is passed fit and proper by the SFA, Scottish football is finished. If you thought appointing a tax-evading cheat, Alex McLeish EBT. (£1.7M) as Scotland manager was as low as the SFA could go, get ready for the bends should they welcome Lucifer Murray back to the table.
Anyone for a rack of succulent lamb?
