Murray began his career with Rangers, where he won the domestic treble in 1992/93. Murray left Ibrox in 1996, moving to Swiss side Sion winning the Swiss League and Cup double before moving to French club Lorient a year later. Following his spells abroad, Murray returned to Scotland for a short spell at Dundee United, before moving back to the continent with German side Mainz 05. During his two years there, he had a short loan spell with English side Grimsby Town, and came back to Scotland permanently in 2002, signing for Falkirk. Murray played out the next season with Ayr United, which was to be his last in professional football.

Murray represented the Scotland national under-21 football team.

Scout and Agent

Murray later worked alongside ex-Rangers player Kevin Drinkell for a sports management company. He also worked as a co-commentator for Setanta Sports coverage of the Bundesliga. Murray was appointed chief scout by Rangers on 8 March 2011. He left this position in acrimonious circumstances on 2 April 2013.
