Rangers striker Kenny Miller has raved about the effect Graeme Murty has had on the Ibrox side’s players after taking the reins short-term.
Murty was promoted from his usual role as Under-20’s head coach on an interim basis after Pedro Caixinha’s sacking and veteran Miller thinks the former Norwich City youth coach has done a great job of lifting the players.
Rangers have won two and lost two under senior man Murty so far and face a double-header against Aberdeen this week as the Gers face a make-or-break run of games.
Defeats against Dundee and Hamilton have left Rangers trailing the Dons by six points in the Scottish Premiership before facing them home and away over the coming days.
Despite the positives of Murty’s promotion, Miller admitted the players hadn’t shown the difference the interim boss has made in their last two games in which they suffered defeats.
“Graeme has come in and has done a fantastic job of picking the boys up but we have not shown that in the past couple of games,” Miller said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

The Gers face Derek McInnes’ side at Ibrox on Wednesday night before heading north on Sunday for a lunchtime clash at Pittodrie.
Aberdeen won the last meeting between the two sides at Ibrox – their first win in Govan since 1991 – but Rangers will be hoping to take three points and close the gap to the Dons in the Scottish Premiership.
