Emerson Hyndman: This Rangers senior man deserves credit
By Dominic Toner
Rangers midfielder Emerson Hyndman believes that caretaker manager Graeme Murty has done well since his appointment and deserves great credit.
The 20-year-old midfielder has praised Murty and feels he has stepped in well during a difficult period.
Murty was named the caretaker boss following the departure of Mark Warburton in Febrauary and earned a narrow 2-1 win over Greenock Morton in the Scottish Cup fifth-round.
However, he tasted defeat on Sunday as he took charge of the 2-1 loss way to Dundee.
The result means Rangers are third-placed in the league table and six points adrift of Aberdeen in second.

“It’s been a bit difficult, but Graeme has stepped in and done well. We are all fighting out there,” Hyndman said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Hyndman remains in temporary charge until a successor is found and will be hoping to see his side show a response in their next game.
Rangers travel to bottom of the league Inverness on Friday night and have the perfect opportunity to put some pressure on Aberdeen, who host Ross County on Saturday.
Hyndman is expected to be involved and he has been one of the stronger performers during a difficult period.
The 20-year-old central midfielder moved to the Scottish giants in January on loan from Bournemouth and has already made six appearances.
