MURRAY FORCED BRIAN TO STAY!; Dutch Blast Rocks Rangers


Jackson, Keith, Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland)


Rangers went to war with Ajax last night after a shock attack from bitter coach Morten Olsen.

Olsen has accused Ibrox chairman David Murray of double-crossing the Dutch club over their pounds 4.5 million move for Brian Laudrup.

But frustrated Dane Olsen insists Laudrup - also wanted by Arsenal and Manchester United - had set his heart on Amsterdam.

He said: "Brian phoned me from the airport after flying home from his meeting with Mr Murray.
