Murty makes admission about Rangers predicament, shares what is ill informed
By Danny Wright
Graeme Murty had admitted that he doesn’t know everything that is going behind the scenes at Rangers.
The caretaker manager has taken charge of the last three games and was responding to Sky Sports when he was asked about criticism directed at the club over their long search to find a new manager.
Fans have grown impatient with the Rangers board, who are yet to appoint a full-time manager to replace Mark Warburton, who left the club near the beginning of the month.
Murty was placed in caretaker charge of the club following Warburton’s exit but has failed to win any of his two league games in charge.
“I would say (criticism) would be ill-informed rather than unfair because people tend to criticise when they don’t have full knowledge of all of the facts,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“I don’t have full knowledge of all the facts so you will notice I don’t give massively full answers but I think people without knowledge of all of the facts should be very careful in what they are saying.”
Rangers are beginning to lose sight of second-placed Aberdeen and may have to settle for third place in their first season back in the Scottish Premiership.
They are nine points behind the Dons having lost back-to-back games 2-1 to both Dundee and Inverness.
