An award-winning sports writer, and a national newspaper journalist since 2000, I mostly cover football, in particular the commotions of the Old Firm, but also further afield. There are also regular forays into boxing and golf, my other passions.
The shareholders have begun the process of calling an extraordinary general meeting to force the exit of both men.
Motions for the EGM are to include the appointment of two new directors, James Easdale and Chris Morgan.
Mr Easdale owns McGill's buses with his brother Sandy, while Mr Morgan was named by Charles Green last year as part of his original consortium that bought the club. He is described as "a UK-based businessman representing family trusts".
They already own a minority shareholding, but Charles Green, who resigned as chief executive, told the Ibrox board last month that he would be selling his 7.8% share- holding to them in December. The pair want a seat on the board in return for taking a bigger stake the club.
Mr Murray remains in place following further talks yesterday, but it is understood his fellow directors will seek his exit in the coming weeks. The chairman's potential departure from the club follows an Ibrox board meeting on Monday.
Mr Green's continued presence at the meetings, despite his decision to quit as chief executive last month following a series of controversies, is said to be a source of contention.He was involved in the vote of no confidence in Mr Murray by taking part in the board meeting by conference call.
