Murray has appealed to the fans
Rangers chairman David Murray has voiced his disapproval at sectarian songs from the Ibrox faithful.

Murray contacted supporters making it clear he wants the songs to stop.

He told newspaper Scotland on Sunday: "Come on, we're past that. Sing 'Follow, Follow, We Will Follow Rangers' but leave out the undertones."

Murray has also contacted Celtic to congratulate them on winning the title.

He believes Celtic's success is beneficial for the Scottish game - and will help to spur Rangers as well.

He said: "It's been a good reality check. Some people on the board won't like me saying this but I think it is healthy for Scottish football.

"We are not the champions at the moment. But we will be again.

"Let Celtic enjoy it while they can. They deserve it and we've congratulated them."
