Malcolm Murray apologises on behalf of Rangers – but should he have?


Despite the apology, the general consensus is why Malcolm Murray is apologising, rather than those responsible Sir David Murray and Craig Whyte.

Murray said: “We are acutely aware that events at our club, brought about by people who are no longer here, have triggered a crisis in Scottish football. Ally McCoist, the staff and players have nothing to apologise for. But the club needs to make an apology. It is only right that someone expresses our sorrow and regret.”

“On behalf of the new board of directors, I apologise unreservedly to all for the distress, disruption and difficulty inflicted on the football community, caused entirely by the actions of people who failed miserably to act responsibly during their stewardship of Rangers.

“All of Scottish football is now having to live with the consequences of that behaviour and every true Rangers fan will consider it a matter of deep regret that events at our club in the past have been the root cause of an extremely difficult time for Scottish football.

“The people who are now running Rangers Football Club want the club to move forward but we cannot do so until we have recognised how damaging to football the crisis at our club has been.

“We want to rebuild Rangers but we also want to ensure the club plays a role that is beneficial to Scottish football, the Scottish economy and Scottish life in general.”

The Rangers fans as well as Scottish football as a whole are waiting on the real culprits to stand up and come out in public and apologise for their handling of Rangers. Over to you David Murray and Craig Whyte.
