Murray urges Whyte to sell Rangers shares

Paul Murray as implored owner Craig Whyte to sell his majority shareholding in Rangers so the club can move on and prosper.

The Scottish giants are still in administration with fears that liquidation could be an option but Murray, who heads the Blue Knights consortium, just wants Whyte to give up his 85.3% share so 'Gers can get out of the current mess they find themselves in.

"The fundamental issue is Craig Whyte," Murray said.

"I actually find the guy's behaviour to be staggering.

"After everything that's happened, I can't believe he's effectively blocking me from trying to do the right thing for the club.

"You think he'd have the decency to do one last thing to help the club. But as we stand at the moment he's still refusing to sell his shares to me.

"If Craig Whyte isn't prepared to sell his shares to me then the only way around it is to get involved in legal mechanisms.

"That takes time and the club doesn't have time.

"I'm not saying I'm the only person who can buy the shares.

"But if I am the right person and I have the right bid then surely he should hand the shares over. Otherwise, in the absence of that, it's a pretty bleak outlook."
