Rangers supporters have been in high spirits in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side dispatch Falkirk 4-1 on Sunday to reach the last four of the Scottish Cup, where they will pit their wits against Old Firm rivals Celtic next month.
Graeme Murty’s men got past Fraserburgh and Ayr United to reach the quarter-finals of the competition, as they seek to end a nine-year wait for what would be a 34th Scottish Cup crown. And the Scottish giants took a step closer to the title on Sunday as a hat-trick from Jason Cummings alongside an Aaron Muirhead own goal sealed an easy win for the Gers at Ibrox, thus setting them up perfectly for the visit of Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.
As such, there have been many happy Rangers fans in the Tavern in recent times, and they are likely to be intrigued by a potentially key report from The Scottish Sun, which suggests that rumours of a possible return to Rangers for ex-chairman Sir David Murray are wide of the mark.
Reports on Thursday suggested that the 66-year-old, who was the majority shareholder of the club between 1988 and 2011, was considering a surprise return to Ibrox to buy back into the Light Blues.
Murray enjoyed a successful stint as chairman with 15 league titles coming under his stewardship, but he left the club seven years ago in controversial circumstances after selling Rangers to Craig Whyte for just £1, a deal many supporters feel paved the way for the crippling financial problems that followed.
Nonetheless, a recent update from The Scottish Sun has quashed any rumours surrounding a possible return for Murray, in news which is highly likely to interest our resident Rangers fans.
Landlord’s verdict: Sir David Murray is reportedly eyeing up a return to Rangers seven years after selling the club for just £1, which brought to an end a 23-year stint as the club’s majority shareholder.
And given the controversial circumstances surrounding his departure, this news is likely to be well-received by Rangers supporters, many of whom are more focused on Sunday’s crunch Old Firm derby at Ibrox.
