Rangers continued their unbeaten start to the new SPL season with a 4 - 1 victory over visitors Hamilton Academical at Ibrox Stadium (29th Aug 09). Doubles form Steven Whittaker and last season’s top SPL goal scorer Kirs Boyd ensured that all three points were taken by the Ibrox side.

The victory sees Rangers go top of the league on goal difference after Celtics 1 – 0 away win against Hibs today (30 Aug 09). Hamilton did manage to score a late consolation three minutes from time through defender Mark McLaughlin but it was too little too late even though it was Hamilton’s the first goal of season.

It was announced yesterday (26 Aug 2009) that Sir David Murray is stepping down from his role at Rangers both as Chairman and Board Director. Sound familiar? He of course stepped down before back in 2002 but quickly put himself back at the helm within two years of walking away last time.

However, I genuinely believe we won’t be seeing a hat trick of returns from Murray as he has openly admitted that he is willing to relinquish his majority shareholding in the club providing its in the best interests of taking Rangers forward. How many a fan must be waiting with baited breath for a money laden Arab led consortium to come knocking at the Ibrox door.
