Rangers Warn Newcastle Players Are Staying At Ibrox!

But the fact is .... Sir David Murray has told Newcastle that Rangers "have no intention of selling Allan McGregor, Barry Ferguson or Madjid Bougherra" this month.

Murray: "We have no intention of selling Allan McGregor, Barry Ferguson, Madjid Bougherra or anybody else.

"There is no pressure to do so from me or the banks.

"People are asking how bad is it at Rangers?

"Rangers have to be run on a sound fiscal basis.

"We did not budget for losing to FBK Kaunas, we have a squad of 28 players and we simply cannot sustain the level of outgoings compared to what is coming in.

"We are paying between £5m and £7m in wages per year for players who are not required.

"You cannot choose who you may wish to put out the door because it is dependent on offers coming in.
We received an offer for Kris Boyd and we felt he was a saleable item.

"I stress we are not promoting the sale of Barry Ferguson and to say we are a selling club is ridiculous. I repeat: I have no intention of promoting the sale of anyone else."
