Foderingham gives insight on Rangers dressing room morale
By James Black
Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has thrown his weight behind interim boss Graeme Murty and revealed that he hopes to continue playing under him.
Under-20’s boss Murty took charge of the senior squad after Pedro Caixinha’s sacking two weeks ago and has won both his games in the hotseat.
It’s the second time Murty has taken interim control if the Ibrox giants after also stepping up in the wake of Mark Warburton’s resignation in February.
The Gers have looked like a different team under Murty and Foderingham believes the squad enjoy working with the four-times capped former Scotland international and that there’s currently a positive morale in the dressing room.
“Graeme did a fantastic job the last time he stepped in and he is continuing that now,” Foderingham said, as quoted by the Daily Record website.

“The players are enjoying our time under him and we have had a few good results and hopefully we can continue that.
He added: “Graeme is a really likeable character, I think that comes across from his interviews as well.
“The fans have taken to him, the boys have taken to him, so it makes for a very positive environment.”
Since Murty’s short-term promotion, the Light Blues have won 3-1 away at Hearts and 3-0 against Partick Thistle at Ibrox as they have closed the gap on second-place Aberdeen to three points in the Scottish Premiership.
The Gers are next in action after the international break ends on November 18th when they face Hamilton at Ibrox.
With 12 days until the Ibrox giants take to the pitch against Accies, the Gers could have appointed a new manager to replace Pedro Caixinha long-term by then.
Derek McInnes is the current bookies’ favourite to replace Caixinha at Ibrox as the 17th permanent manager in the club’s 145-year history.
