Insider details major development on reported £150m-backed tycoon interest in Rangers
Former Rangers chairman Sir David Murray is not eyeing up an opportunity to reinvest in the Glasgow club, according to an insider at Ibrox.
Gers fans blog Four Lads Had a Dream, which has emerged as an extremely reliable source of news surrounding the club in recent months, claimed on their Twitter account that a report in the Express which claimed that Murray, 66, is hoping for the opportunity to either buy out the shares of current investors is completely inaccurate.
Today’s article on D Murray is false and inaccurate
Murray is not interested in a return nor are our board amenable to allowing it to happen
Rumour is 18 months old & completely untrue
We have huge game on Sunday
Ignore the Nonsense, the Irrelevant and the Noise

This serves as a major development in the claims and is also a major boost for Rangers fans, who do not want to see the £150million-backed tycoon anywhere near Ibrox after selling the club to Craig Whyte for £1 seven years ago.
The Express did reported that current Gers chairman Dave King would have been reluctant to allow his former partner to return to Govan, but now it seems that the club chief will not even have to worry about that possibility.
Football Insider verdict
There have been some odd reports circling recently about both Rangers and Celtic, so it may be something to do with this weekend’s Old Firm derby being the biggest and most important that Scotland has seen in a very long time. Four Lads Had a Dream’s response to this Express’ report is a big boost for fans though. All Rangers need right now is stability. Dave King has brought that and he does not need any change at boardroom level at this period in time. Off-the-field matters have dominated Ibrox in recent years but Graeme Murty has finally got people talking about what happens in 90 minutes every week. It must stay that way.
