Tape Showing Rangers' Chair Malcolm Murray Drunk Leaked On YouTube
Rangers Chair Malcolm Murray Monday night insisted that "he had been stitched up after a video of him drunk was leaked on the Internet," according to the Scotland DAILY RECORD. The battle for control of Rangers "hit a new low as the doctored recording of a clearly inebriated Murray being helped out of a restaurant was posted on YouTube." The "voices of two people laughing and goading Murray" were distorted beyond recognition. But the Record later "obtained the original, unaltered footage and immediately identified one of the voices" as that of Ibrox Financial Dir Brian Stockbridge. The club was forced to admit that Stockbridge -- who came to Ibrox as part of former CEO Charles Green’s takeover -- "was the man who made the tape" (DAILY RECORD, 5/21).
