'What a headache' - Murty details Rangers problem he is facing after Florida Cup triumphs

Rangers manager Graeme Murty has revealed that he has a selection headache after the club’s winter trip to the United States to take part in the Florida Cup.
Murty used 23 players during the Gers’ two games in Florida – with a number of first-team regulars missing the trip completely – and the Ibrox boss admits he’ll face some tough choices when the Gers return to domestic action later this month.
The Light Blues secured wins over Brazilian sides Corinthians and Atletico Mineiro during their stay in the Sunshine State as they prepare for the second-half of the season.
Murty revealed that he felt everyone who played in Florida “added something to the collective” as he continues to improve his side.
“I have more of an idea of what a headache I’ve got because I think everyone has brought something to the party here,” Murty said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“Everyone who played has added something to the collective and that is what we want, we want more good players in the squad pushing and improving the people around them and challenging for places.
“If we get that training will be better, games will be better and hopefully if we react in a positive way we can push ourselves to a higher place.”
The Gers return to domestic action on January 21st when they travel north to take on Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup at tiny Bellslea Park.
Three days after facing Fraserburgh, the Ibrox giants host Aberdeen in a game that would see the Gers leapfrog Derek McInnes side on goal difference with a win.
Rangers are currently third in the Scottish Premiership and will be desperate to close the gap to runaway leaders Celtic over the rest of the season.
