Rangers chairman Sir David Murray has claimed some supporters were trying to cause trouble by saying there were irregular goings-on concerning the transfer of Carlos Cuellar.

Spaniard Cuellar moved to English Premiership club Aston Villa for 7.8 million pounds on a four-year deal on Tuesday.

The Rangers Supporters Trust however warned Murray there could be a demonstration against the sale of Cuellar at Saturday's Scottish Premier League game against Hearts.

Ibrox chief Murray accused those who suggest there is a conspiracy behind the sale of the club's star defender of trying to cause “mayhem” at Ibrox.

He told the club's official website, www.rangers.co.uk “I know there have been a lot of questions asked: 'Was he forced out the door?' etc, etc.

“But the clear fact is we sent out on the website an honest statement by the chief executive (Martin Bain) explaining the situation.

“But then people want to read into it and put their own twist on it; there's not a lot we can do.”

Murray added: “People are putting that on websites, knowing there's no truth in it at all but just endeavouring to cause mayhem.”
