Graeme Murty is the new third favourite to become the next permanent Rangers manager after he oversaw Wednesday’s 3-0 hammering of Aberdeen at Ibrox, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.
SkyBet have slashed the odds on the 43-year-old to become the next Ibrox boss down to 6/1 after he managed to mastermind a stunning win over Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen.
McInnes (1/3) remains the favourite to be Pedro Caixinha’s successor, but it seems that Wednesday night’s Premiership results has swayed the market.
On Tuesday, McInnes was reinstalled as favourite for the Ibrox vacancy, moving ahead of Alex McLeish in the running, who is now priced at 9/4.
Murty was priced at 16/1 just 24 hours prior to this latest slash in his price, meaning that many happy Gers fans have perhaps started piling the money on the caretaker to become the permanent boss after Wednesday’s win.
James Tavernier scored a brilliant brace with strikes either side of Carlos Pena’s goal to hand the Light Blues a comfortable victory against Aberdeen, who were reduced to 10 men after Celtic loanaee Ryan Christie was sent off.
Rangers have been hunting for a replacement for Caixinha for five weeks after the Portuguese managed was sacked for overseeing a glut of poor results.
Murty has won three of five games in caretaker charge, but losses against Hamilton and Dundee may scupper his chances of a major promotion from the Under-20s job to the first-team one.
In the latest Rangers news, Murty has had his say on Wednesday’s game against the Dons.
