Sky Sports journalist Andrew Dickson believes that Graeme Murty should give Ryan Hardie a chance at the club next season.
He referenced an earlier tweet that had awarded the Championship Player of the Month award to Hardie who is currently playing on loan at Livingston.
Hardie’s got to be given a chance at Rangers next season. Had enough loan spells now, has shown he can do it at the levels below. Now he needs a sustained opportunity to do it in the top flight and at Ibrox. https://t.co/mEkUDUKRAp

The 20-year-old striker, who came up through the youth ranks at Rangers, has been out on loan three times.
He joined Livingston in January, after making seven appearances from the bench for Rangers in the first half of the season, and has now scored five times in six Championship games.
Football Insider verdict:
Ryan Hardie might have found his level for now. He’s scored two goals in 17 games for Rangers but didn’t do enough in the first half of the season to warrant any sort of run in the first team. Rangers are going places under Murty. They might have lost 3-2 to Celtic over the weekend but they were unlucky and Murty should get a chance to take Celtic on from an even start next season. Hardie might get a place on the bench but even that wouldn’t be assured and another six month loan would be the best thing for him at the moment.
