Seven months on from that bid for Jordan Jones, the one-time Rangers target might be on the move - but not to Ibrox unless Steven Gerrard renews an interest.
According to The Daily Mail, Jones, wanted by Rangers in January, is now on the radar of League One side Sunderland, with Jack Ross being a fan of the Kilmarnock winger.
But should Gerrard pick up where Murty left off and challenge the Black Cats for Jones's signature?
At 23, Jones, valued at £1 million according to The Scotsman, has a very bright future ahead of him and Rangers could be a fantastic location to develop his potential further.
Of course, Gerrard has already signed Jamie Murphy on a permanent deal, and the Scot is likely to continue in that left-wing role at Ibrox - the same position as Jones plays for Killie.
However, the Rugby Park star is a right-footer and can play on both wings. Rangers didn't boast a brilliant squad last season as far as cover goes, but it's getting better under the legendary midfielder and bringing Jones on board wouldn't go amiss.
If he goes to Sunderland and winds up being a star in English football then the Gers only have themselves to blame.
