RSA President Calls For Stockbridge Exit In Aftermath Of Drunken Murray Video Release
Published May 23, 2013
Rangers Supporters Assembly President Andy Kerr said that Scottish Third Division Rangers Financial Dir Brian Stockbridge "should resign over his alleged leak" of a video showing a drunken Club Chair Malcolm Murray, according to the SCOTSMAN. Video emerged over the weekend showing Murray "drunkenly shouting while on a night out in London." Murray believes that he has been set up by Stockbridge "in an attempt to remove him from his post." Kerr "has called for Stockbridge to stand down." Kerr: "It's unbecoming of the club. The lack of class is not something Rangers fans have been used to" (SCOTSMAN, 5/22). In Glasgow, Scott McDermott wrote Kerr said, "If that was happening among fans, you would't be happy. But for a board of directors to do it is an embarrassment." Another fans' group, the Rangers Supporters Trust, has also been left dismayed by Stockbridge and Ahma's behavior "and made it clear they want new people in charge at Ibrox." A statement released last night said, "This kind of behaviour does the club no favours. It's an underhand and damaging course of events which again leaves fans looking on in despair" (DAILY RECORD, 5/22).
