Hamilton clash is make-or-break for Rangers senior man future - view
Rangers travel to face Hamilton on Sunday and, after Aberdeen’s defeat at the hands of Hibs on Saturday, it is a make-or-break game for Graeme Murty and his Gers side.
A win for the Gers would see them climb back above the Dons into second-place in the Scottish Premiership on goal difference after failing to take advantage of previous slip-ups by Derek McInnes’ side.
The Light Blues have made heavy work of the likes of Hamilton this season with Martin Canning’s side winning on their last trip to Ibrox to pick up an away league win over the Gers for the first time since 1926.
Murty’s side seem to have some difficulty with the ‘lesser’ sides in the Scottish Premiership while consistently performing well against the better teams but they need to get it right at New Douglas Park on Sunday.
For senior man Murty, with his own long-term future still up in the air, getting the monkey off his back and taking the three points against Accies will strengthen his case to be appointed manager beyond the end of the season.
If the Gers can’t beat Hamilton then there will be serious questions asked over Murty’s capability to take the Light Blues forward and even leave the Ibrox giants essentially back at square one.
