Rangers legend Willie Henderson believes Graeme Murty has been “absolutely brilliant” since stepping in as caretaker boss and thinks people could be in for a “surprise” when the Gers finally appoint a new manager.
Murty has been in charge since Pedro Caixinha was sacked on October 26th and will remain in the dugout until the end of the moth at the earliest.
The Light Blues have won five of their seven games under the interim boss and have closed the gap to Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic to five points.
Henderson admitted that the thinks senior man Murty got his tactics “spot-on” in both of the wins over Aberdeen as he praised the job done by the former Scotland international.
“He’s been under a lot of pressure, like anybody would be when put in the position he’s in just now,” Henderson said, as quoted by The Herald.
“He’s had two games against Aberdeen. Two games against Derek McInnes and his tactics have been spot-on twice.
“I think he’s done absolutely brilliant under the circumstances. It might surprise us where it all ends.”
Rangers are currently second in the Scottish Premiership – on goal difference – with Aberdeen right behind them.
The Gers travel to Edinburgh on Wednesday night to take on Neil Lennon’s Hibs as the Ibrox giants look to put some pressure on Celtic before the Old Firm clash later this month.
Former Scotland winger Henderson spent 12 years at Ibrox and made 478 appearances before a fall out with manager Willie Waddell cut short his Ibrox career just before the 1972 European Cup Winners’ Cup success in Barcelona.
