The ‘Gers in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to reports that their club’s former chairman, David Murray, is looking at a shock move to reinvest in the Ibrox club. The reports come seven years on from when Murray sold his shares to Craig Whyte for just £1, a move which led to the club spiralling out of financial control and ending up playing football in the Scottish Third Division.

With that in mind, it’s fair to see why the Bluenoses propping up our bar wouldn’t want to see Murray, or his money, anywhere near their club. Murray’s period as owner of the Glaswegian club was mostly successful, however, as the club won a whopping 15 League Titles under the Scottish businessman, including an incredible nine in a row between 1989 and 1997.
Despite the interest from their former owner he left under a cloud of controversy, Rangers will be focussing on their huge SPL clash with Celtic at Ibrox on Sunday. The early kick-off presents itself as the weekend’s biggest game in Scottish football as 1st play 2nd in what is set to be another cracking Old Firm for the ages. Rangers sit just six points behind the Bhoys in Green and a win can cut that gap to three, although Celtic can increase the gap again as they have a game in hand over their city rivals.
With that in mind, here are the ‘Gers’ fans views:
Heard this a few weeks ago.. but imo don’t want him anywhere near the club again unless it’s hanging from a rope

Only if he puts in what he took out then disapears forever want him no where near our club again

If he doesn't have much control but willing to put money into it then i don't mind…if true

I’m not sure about this one…… See what happens, see if King definitely needs to go down that road.
I think we are making great progress and not long down the line we will be looking for a much more suitable investor in the club.

He can invest money into the club brilliant but he can stay clear of the boardroom
