Former Rangers owner David Murray will not be returning as an investor at Ibrox as the club seek out to bring in new backers over the coming months, according to an insider.
The EstConsultancy Twitter account, who have established themselves as a reliable source of inside information on all news surrounding the Light Blues, have definitively stated that despite a number of fans keen on seeing their former chief make the shock move back to Ibrox, it has “no chance” of going ahead.
Folk actually wanting David Murray back involved at Ibrox. Downright mental with no chance of happening.
Investment being sought and still a bit away from any sort of announcement.

However, even without Murray’s potential return, the club are said to be seeking new investors to step in ahead of Steven Gerrard’s arrival as manager, but issued the key timeline that an announcement is not imminent with work taking place behind the scenes.
Football Insider verdict
It appears as though the man in the manager’s seat will not be the only change at Ibrox this summer but you can be certain that the work being done is solely because of Gerrard’s impending arrival in Glasgow. The former Liverpool star appears to have created something of a bandwagon feel at the Light Blues and there will no doubt want to be a number of people, both players and those behind the scenes, wanting to join the Anfield icon in case he is a massive success. If nothing else, Gerrard has brought some excitement back to the blue half of Glasgow and while the primary objective is to close the gap on Celtic at the top of the table, he has also got people talking about Rangers once again, something those outside of Scotland rarely did. Now it is up to him to take them to the next level and he will be expecting some investment in the transfer window. If that comes from a multi-millionaire wanting to be the man behind the Gerrard revolution, you will find few complaints coming out of Govan.
