Former Scottish Rangers Director Asks For Clarity From Club's Board
Published September 26, 2013
MAKING A PITCH: In Edinburgh, Angus Wright reported Murray "is of the opinion" that Blue Pitch and Margarita -- which hold around 15% of the club’s shares between them -- "could garner enough votes" to keep CEO Craig Mather and Financial Dir Brian Stockbridge "in post." Blue Pitch "also funded" Charles Green’s £5.5M ($8.8M) takeover of the club. The former director "has called on the club to ensure that Rangers fans are not left in the dark over the identities of the two groups." Murray: "We spent all of last week identifying who we all are under the section 793 process [a legal mechanism to find out who owns shares]. Has the club done the same with Blue Pitch Holdings and Margarita Holdings? Are they happy with the answers they got? And will they now make public the name of those involved in order that the Rangers supporters are afforded transparency?" (SCOTSMAN, 9/25).
