Graeme Murty: This is how I will feel when new Rangers manager comes in
Interim Rangers boss Graeme Murty has revealed he will be “sad” when a new manager comes in and he finally returns to his own role as Under-20’s head coach after six weeks working with the Ibrox first-team.
Murty was handed the reins on a short-term basis after Pedro Caixinha’s sacking as manager on October 26th and is expected to return to the club’s Academy once Caixinha’s replacement is appointed.
The Gers have won four of their six games under Murty’s control since Caixinha was sacked and the former Scotland international has become a popular figure with fans and players alike.
The 43-year-old admitted he will be downbeat once he returns to his own post but revealed his pride at what he achieved in his time as caretaker manager.
“I will be sad,” Murty said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“It will be hard looking at the team because it won’t be mine, so to speak.

“But I will be proud of what I’ve done, when I look back on it.
“The hard bit for me will be making sure I give this level of detail and this level of focus to the young players I’m going back to work with.
“To do anything other than that would be a disservice to them.”
Murty has been in charge of the Gers’ Under-20’s side since August 2016 and has played a big role in preparing young talent such as Ross McCrorie, Aidan Wilson and Jamie Barjonas for first-team football.
Caixinha’s sacking was the second time the Rangers board has turned to Murty to dig them out of a hole with the former Norwich City youth coach also stepping up to take charge of the first-team earlier this year after Mark Warburton’s resignation.
