Football Insider verdict:
Rangers take on Celtic at Ibrox on Sunday at midday in a game that could see the gap at the top of the Premiership table reduced to just three points. Fans are reaching fever pitch and everyone seems to think the game could go either way. Murphy joined from Brighton on loan in January, has played seven Premiership games since then, scoring two goals. He’ll be an important part of Murty’s jigsaw as he aims to send a seismic shock through Scottish football on Sunday.
