Lots of Glasgow Rangers fans have been left fuming after a claim from Ewan Murray emerged involving their annual report.
The Ibrox faithful released their report on their official website, which confirmed staff costs of £47m, including £33.5m on the first team playing squad in total.
Murray, a journalist who oversees coverage of Scottish football, took to his Twitter page to give his thoughts on the numbers, claiming that it is a ‘serious outlay’ for a team looking to win the Scottish Premiership and reach the last 16 in the UEFA Europa League.
Should Gerrard have left Rangers?
Murray has caused anger among Light Blues supporters with some of his posts before, seemingly even looking for bites at times.
The numbers may be deemed to be high, but the Light Blues will only spend what they think will give them the most success, and are well within their right to do that.
Some Gers also noticed how he did not compare the numbers to those of their main rivals Celtic.
Rangers fans on Murray claim
These RFC fans fumed as Murray shared his claim on Twitter:
“The golf correspondent is taking up fishing, again”
“His point is basically grown from a point of jealousy which means he completely ignores facts, like how much did the team who finished 2nd spend on there playing staff. All about the Rangers with this guy”
“Honestly don’t know what your point is here”
“Here we go”
“What is your issue with all things Rangers?? The only defence is that it seems to be a concern of many in the poor excuse that passes as Scottish sports journalism.”
“If you only knew how stupid this is you wouldn’t have wrote it.”
