Hamilton boss Martin Canning has praised Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty.
Cannning and Murty will come head-to-head at Ibrox this weekend as Rangers take on Hamilton, and the New Douglas Park manager thinks that Murty has done a good job on both occasions he has taken caretaker charge of Rangers.
Speaking to the Sunday Post, Canning said “He’s done well both times. He was on my pro licence and he’s a lovely guy.
“He’s a proper football man. I’m glad to see him doing well when he gets the opportunity.
“Graeme is probably not even thinking about it longer term, he is just thinking game by game, getting the best results he can get and see where it leads.”
Murty has a 100% record in this most recent spell as Rangers boss.
His first spell in charge included a highly creditable 1-1 draw with Celtic at Celtic Park.
It also included a 6-0 Scottish Cup quarter-final victory over this weekend’s opponents Hamilton.
His first match in charge in this second spell saw Rangers come from a goal down to defeat Hearts 3-1 at Murrayfield, followed by a 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle at Ibrox.
With Rangers currently still taking applications for the managerial job at Ibrox, Murty may well be in charge for another game or two.
