'Would be mental', 'Enough to win 55' - Rangers fans react to multi-million tycoon claim

Rangers fans have taken to social media to react to a claim that former chairman Sir David Murray is considering a return to Ibrox in order to reinvest in the club.

The Daily Express have claimed on their website that the Scottish businessman, who sold the Gers to Craig Whyte for the sum of £1 back in 2011 after struggling with his businesses, has turned his fortunes around and is now worth £150million, and that he wants to invest some of that money back into the Light Blues.

It is claimed that the 66-year-old is hoping to buy out the shares of existing investors, or failing that, to purchase new shares when they are made available in the near future, although he could have trouble convincing Dave King to buy them when they are not publicly listed.

However, the report states that King’s willingness to do business with Murray is based on how much investment the former Gers figure is willing to put into the club, and that a significant sum could well turn the current chairman’s head.

However, after his controversial exit seven years ago, which many put down as a catalyst to the club’s eventual liquidation, not all the supporters are so keen to see him return, turning to Twitter to voice their concerns.
