Murty delivers Rangers verdict after double win v Aberdeen

Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty is delighted with the way the Rangers players handled this week’s double header against Aberdeen.

The Gers followed up Wednesday’s 3-0 victory over the Dons with a 2-1 win at Pittodrie, which puts Rangers into second place in the Scottish Premiership on goal difference.

And Murty, speaking to Rangers’ official website, revealed the major takeaway he had from the two victories.

“I am very pleased reflecting on it, I am proud of the players in the way they have stood up.

“They have been two very different games and two very different challenges, we saw different aspects of a team who are back in second place and showed quality alongside that character.

“As a coach going forward I just hope they take that energy forward and that belief they will garner from that into the festive period.”

Murty’s time as Rangers interim manager seems to be coming to an end, with reports claiming that the Gers board are set to approach Aberdeen to make Derek McInnes the next permanent Ibrox boss.

Murty has had an up and down time as manager, beginning well with two victories over Hearts and Partick Thistle.

This was then followed by two poor defeats to Hamilton and Dundee.

Rangers have responded well though, the two wins against Aberdeen now making them the closest challengers to Celtic.

Rangers have a difficult schedule in December, with an away trip to fourth placed Hibs on December 13 and a visit to Celtic Park on December 30. It remains to be seen who will be in charge at Ibrox for those fixtures.
