Murray can now focus on the job of rebuilding Rangers


After the Scottish FA declared Paul Murray ‘fit and proper’ to sit on the Rangers board, the interim Rangers chairman declared that he is now focusing on ‘rebuilding Rangers’ and ‘take it back to the top of Scottish football’.

In a statement published on the official Rangers website, Murray said: “I am delighted the matter has now been positively resolved and I can fully focus on the job of helping rebuild Rangers Football Club.

“It is another step forward for Rangers and I thank the Scottish FA and the Professional Game Board for their understanding during the process.

“It is an honour and privilege to be a Director of this institution and it is a responsibility I take seriously. Today’s announcement confirms what I always believed, that I am fit and proper to play an active role on the Rangers Board and will work tirelessly to take the club back to the top of Scottish football and beyond.”

With majority shareholder Dave King yet to find out his status, the club added: “For the purpose of clarity the Club would like to point out that the Scottish FA Fit and Proper process with regard to Dave King is continuing. The authorities should be given space to deal with this matter and so there will be no further comment until a decision has been made.”
