Ally McCoist: Major Rangers manager decision could be revealed within two weeks

Rangers legend Ally McCoist believes that the club could announce their decision over the long-term future of manager Graeme Murty in two weeks’ time.

Murty has been in charge ever since Pedro Caixinha was sacked in October after Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes snubbed the chance to move to Ibrox in December.

The former Light Blues Under-20s manager has done a steady job of providing stability and has even sparked talks of a title race with Celtic.

He will remain in charge until the summer where the Gers are widely expected to appoint a new long-term manager.

And now, former Rangers manager and player McCoist has predicted there could be a major decision revealed over the next 14 days.

“I’d be very hopeful in the next couple of weeks there would be a bit more light shed on it. I’d expect a bit of clarity one way or another,” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“In an ideal world you’ve got stability but results will dictate whether you have stability. If you don’t get the results you won’t have stability because they’ll change the manager.”

Football Insider verdict

Murty has done a decent job in charge of Rangers and has so far done exactly what was expected of him. The gap to Celtic has closed slightly and there is a chance of winning silverware in the Scottish Cup. If he wins that then it should boost his odds of a new long-term deal a lot. There has been very little talk about who would be up for contention for the job in the summer which suggests that the board are very happy with what Murty has achieved. The former Reading player has not won over the majority of the fanbase, but it seems that no manager will be able to do that.
