Glasgow-born Michael McGurk was shot dead outside his waterside Sydney mansion in a gangland-style execution.

Now the latest episode of “Sopranos on the Harbour”, as some have called it, is riveting Australians, following the arrest of McGurk’s former business associate, Ron Medich.

A multi-millionaire property developer who had been in dispute with McGurk, Medich has been charged with masterminding the murder. A Sydney court heard that shortly after McGurk was shot at close range in his driveway in front of his nine-year-old son, Luc, a text message stating “Job done” was received by a friend of Medich’s, Lucky Gattellari. Medich was allegedly with him.

The murder, in a well-heeled area, shone a light on a murky side of Sydney society. As well as being involved in property deals, McGurk, 57, had been a loan shark and debt collector with a violent reputation. The father of four had once been charged with firebombing a house. There were allegations of blackmail and corruption involving politicians.

At the time of his death, McGurk – who grew up in the Gorbals as Mick Rushford and changed his name when he emigrated to Australia in 1993 – had many enemies, accumulated during his rise from dirt-poor roots to apparent respectability. He sent his children to Sydney’s most exclusive Catholic school and was a pillar of his church, but those who knew his ruthlessness feared him. A week before his death, he told a journalist he believed a hitman was on his trail..
