Graeme Murty: This is why I was nervous in Rangers win against Hearts
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has insisted there are areas his Gers side need to “get better” at but believes they were good value for their win over Hearts in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.
Goals from Jamie Murphy and Russell Martin secured a 2-0 win over the Jambos to close within six points of league leaders Celtic ahead of their clash with Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday.
The Gers have won seven of their eight games since the winter break ended as they have reeled in Celtic after Brendan Rodgers’ side threw away silly points.
“I was more nervous today because there are bits we need to get better at but I thought we were worthy winners,” Murty said, as quoted by the Gers’ official Twitter account.

The Gers dominated much of game and could really have scored much more and made the result much more comfortable against the Jambos.
Murty’s side face St. Johnstone on Tuesday night in the Scottish Premiership before a Scottish Cup quarter-final meeting with Falkirk next weekend.
With an Old Firm clash around the corner, Murty will be desperate to keep his side’s form up and look to give the champions a real run for their money after six years without a challenge.
