Graeme Murty delivers Twitter message to Rangers fans after win v Hamilton

By Danny Wright

Graeme Murty has said on Twitter that he was taken aback by a banner unfurled by Rangers fans before Pedro Caixinha’s first game in charge against Hamilton.

The 42-year-old stood in as caretaker manager while Rangers searched for a replacement for Mark Warburton, who left the club in shrouded circumstances in February.

The Gers supporters held aloft a banner reading: “Thanks for your efforts Graeme Murty.”

Rangers won just one league game during Murty’s time in charge but he managed to salvage a point in his final game in charge when he led his side to a 1-1 draw with Celtic at Parkhead.

Caixinha began life at Ibrox well when Emerson Hyndman, Clint Hill, Martyn Waghorn and Lee Wallace scored in the 4-0 thrashing of the Accies.

Murty has now returned to his role as head of youth development with the Glasgow club.

“Walked out and saw this at Ibrox today! Incredibly humbled by this message. Honoured to be a part of this amazing club,” said the ex-Reading player on his personal Twitter account.

The Light Blues have scored 10 unreturned goals against Hamilton in the last two weeks after they demolished their fellow top-flight club in the Scottish Cup quarter final at the beginning of March.

Despite struggling to win games in the Scottish Premiership, Murty managed to take Gers to the cup semi-final, where they will again meet Celtic at Hampden Park.
