Former Rangers Director Paul Murray Calls For Board Members To Leave Club
Former Scottish League 1 Rangers Dir Paul Murray has called for Rangers CEO Craig Mather to step down in the wake of Monday's Court of Session ruling, "which saw the club annual general meeting postponed," according to the SCOTSMAN. Murray believes that Mather's position "is now untenable," along with that of Finance Dir Brian Stockbridge. As "the power struggle for control of the League 1 club took its fresh twist," Murray revealed after the court hearing that he had recently rejected an offer from Mather of a seat on the board because he refused to "ditch" allies such as Jim McColl. Murray, along with Scott Murdoch, Alex Wilson and Malcolm Murray, "will now do battle with the current board at the rescheduled AGM with shareholders deciding on who should be in charge at the club" (SCOTSMAN, 10/15). In Glasgow, Garry McConnachie wrote Murray hailed a "stunning victory" against the Gers board at the Court of Session. The shareholders' showdown "is now expected to go ahead some time in November." Murray, who confirmed that he turned down a seat on the board on Friday, believes Mather and Stockbridge must "consider their positions" before the rearranged meeting (DAILY RECORD, 10/15).
