The numbers were not even close. I do not know the ins and outs of business management but if any of the Requisitioners needed 52% or more for election, the best they did was Paul Murray’s paltry 37.7%.
Rangers’ existing board comfortably won this vote, even Brian Stockbridge, despite him gaining the lowest re-election vote percentage of the lot (65.3%).
The (relevant) numbers in full:
Existing board re-election:
David Somers: 79.9%
Graham Wallace: 85.5%
Brian Stockbridge: 65.3%
Norman Crighton: 79.5%
James Easdale: 76.9%
Paul Murray: 31.7%
Malcolm Murray: 29.8%
Scott Murdoch: 30.0%
Alex Wilson: 29.9%
These figures are seriously damning and surely spell the end for Murray. He has honourably (twice) said he would move on if this democratic vote did not yield a win for his group.
We must now all move on as a support and club and focus on the future; we need investment.
