RANGERS directors Paul Murray and Barry Scott have stepped down from the Ibrox board.

Murray returned to the top table three years ago as Dave King and John Gilligan outsted the former Light Blues regime.

Scott was appointed as a director in December after the businessman was part of a group that invested funds at Ibrox.

A statement read: "Rangers International Football Club PLC (RIFC) notify the resignation of two directors, Mr Paul Murray and Mr Barry Scott. 

"Paul has been a director since March 2015 and played an important role at that time in helping oust the previous Board and restore the Club to the hands of those who have its best interests at heart.

"Paul has served with distinction as a director since that time and all at Rangers are very grateful for his efforts. We look forward to welcoming him again as a supporter.

"Barry joined the Board more recently and his enthusiasm and drive were welcome. The Board knows it will continue to enjoy his support and appreciates the commitment he has shown to the Club."
