Graeme Murty makes honest admission about Rangers form after closing gap to leaders
Interim Rangers manager Graeme Murty has admitted to his squad they “haven’t achieved anything” after recording the club’s first four-game winning streak in a year.
The Gers picked up back-to-back wins over Aberdeen before seeing off Ross County and Hibs to move them within five points of Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic.
The Ibrox giants have struggled all year to put a run of good results together all year but have finally shown signs of starting to gel following the sacking of manager Pedro Caixinha in October.
“Winning four games is a good start, it’s a nice step, but it’s no more than that,” Murty said, as quoted by the Belfast Telegraph.
“You’ll certainly not hear the players showing satisfaction – more a determination to extend a good points haul. All we’ve done is put a nice marker down.
“Four games in this club’s history isn’t a great deal.

“What we have to do is reach the right levels of performance and we’ll pick up points from that. But we haven’t achieved anything yet.”
The Gers face St. Johnstone at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon in the Scottish Premiership and could close to within two points of Celtic before Brendan Rodgers’ side face Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.
The Old Firm rivals clash on December 30th at Celtic Park in the second Glasgow derby of the season.
Despite being 69 games unbeaten domestically, the Scottish champions have failed to win four games in a row at any point this season and have already dropped more points this season than they did in the whole of the previous campaign.
Murty is in charge of the Gers until the end of the year at the very earliest as the Ibrox boar continue their search for Pedro Caixinha’s permanent replacement.
