Rangers Director Malcolm Murray Under Pressure To Resign, Accused Of Inappropriate Conduct
Scottish Third Division Rangers Dir Malcolm Murray "is under renewed pressure to quit the club amid allegations of inappropriate conduct," according to the SCOTSMAN. The club board "has accused Murray of leaking sensitive information to outsiders, including former director Paul Murray and media outlets." Murray is also "alleged to have listened to voicemail messages on a speakerphone in front of strangers at a hotel." Rangers Dir Brian Stockbridge "was the subject of a plot orchestrated by Murray, according to secret club minutes." Murray, whose background is in pension and fund management, "still has backing from sections of the board" -- most notably former Manager Walter Smith -- but the revelations "expose the director's increasingly precarious position" (SCOTSMAN, 5/13).
