Graeme Murty makes claim about Rangers squad, says what they must not do
Rangers manager Graeme Murty believes his side are good enough to challenge “any team” in Scotland but insists the must not get carried away after their recent run of results.
Murty’s side have won seven of their eight games after the winter break and look a much improved side following an influx on new players in the January transfer window.
The Gers are currently nine points behind Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic and could close the gap to six with a win over St. Johnstone on Tuesday night.
Murty is confident his side can take on all comers domestically – and with an Old Firm clash at Ibrox on March 11th he’ll get his biggest test of his side’s ability soon.
“I believe we have the talent to challenge any team in the country, what we have to do is not get carried away and focus on each game as it arrives,” Murty said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

The Ibrox giants were comfortable 2-0 winners over Hearts on Saturday as they turned in one of their best home performances of the season against Craig Levein’s side.
Goals from Jamie Murphy and Russell Martin secured the three points to leave the Gers three clear of Aberdeen in third-place.
The Gers face St. Johnstone and a Scottish Cup quarter-final against Falkirk at Ibrox before they meet Brendan Rodgers’ side in the third Old Firm clash of the season.
