Murty delivers emotional outburst as Rangers look to end trophy drought for fans

Rangers manager Graeme Murty has claimed that Gers fans have “suffered” in recent years as the Light Blues have attempted to make their way back to the top of Scottish football.
The Gers are currently in a battle with Aberdeen for second place in the Scottish Premiership table, and face Ayr United in the last sixteen of the Scottish Cup.
The Light Blues have not won a single trophy since they were promoted to the Premiership, reaching semi-finals on three occasions but losing them all.
Murty believes that the time is right for the Gers to end their trophy drought.
“We want to be pushing and challenging at the very highest level” he said, as quoted on Rangers’ official Twitter account.
“Our fans have suffered enough.”


He also claimed that there will be hugely emotional scenes when the Gers eventually win another major honour.
“The fans have been through a great deal at this football club. the squad that delivers the next trophy will receive a massive outpouring of emotion.”


The Gers reached the semi-final of the Betfred Cup this season, but lost 2-0 to Motherwell in a controversial match which saw both managers sent-off, in what was the second last match of Pedro Caixinha’s reign as Gers manager.
If the Light Blues are able to win the Scottish Cup this season, it will be their first victory in the competition since 2009, when a Nacho Novo goal was enough to seal a 1-0 victory over Falkirk, which clinched a league and cup double.
In other Rangers news, it can be revealed that a key first teamer has sensationally asked to leave after the board failed to stick to their promise of giving him a new deal during the transfer window.
