In-form Rangers ace likely to have played his last game for club - Ibrox Sources
Jamie Murphy is likely to be let go by Rangers this summer despite his barnstorming form at Burton Albion, Football Insider understands.
The winger, 30, made just two substitute appearances for the Scottish giants in 18 months before he reignited his career by moving to the League One outfit.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Rangers do not see Murphy as capable of being in their first team next season even though he has made a huge impact at Burton.
He is likely to have played his last game for the Glasgow giants as they prepare to listen to offers for him in the summer.
Murphy’s form is likely to invite permanent as well as loan offers from teams north and south of the border.
The left-winger, signed from Brighton in January 2018, enters the final year of his Rangers contract in July and turns 31 a month later.

He was initially a regular when Steven Gerrard took over as manager but has not made a single start for the club since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament on Kilmarnock’s plastic pitch in August 2018.
The former Premier League wide man made just two sub appearances in the first half of the campaign before his loan.
At Burton, Murphy has started 10 consecutive league matches, scoring seven goals and supplying two assists.
It has not been lost on Rangers fans that Murphy was loaned out and then Gerrard barely used winger trio Brandon Barker, Jordan Jones and Sheyi Ojo during the two months of dreadful results that wrecked the team’s season.
Ojo and Jones have struggled to make the matchday squad, while Barker has only had 16 minutes of action since the 17th January win against Stranraer.
