Graeme Murty makes surprising admission about Dave King

In a testimony reminiscent of Mark Warburton, Graeme Murty has implied he has no contact with Dave King and his only liaison at Ibrox is with Managing Director Stewart Robertson and Director of Football Mark Allen.

Warburton made headlines back in the day by admitting he and the executive chairman didn’t speak at all, and if Murty’s latest comments are to be read between  the lines, he too enjoys no contact with the effective Rangers boss.

When asked on contact with King, he said:

“I spoke to Mark Allen yesterday, I spoke to Stewart Robertson yesterday, I speak to them on a daily basis about plans for the summer, plans pre-season, about plans for recruitment. As to my own role I am under no doubt and there is clarity for me, I am in charge until the end of the season. I don’t expect to hear anything before that.”

The complete lack of mention of King does beg the question of exactly what level of input the Castlemilk-born businessman actually has into the running of Rangers, given it seems he has next to no contact with any of the football staff whatsoever.

Best guess seems to be that the suits like Robertson and Murray work on his behalf, with King’s authority needed for any decision (he remains the only executive on the board) taken. But beyond that, your guess is as good as ours, folks.
