Rangers January signing continues to prove his worth with dazzling display v Hearts
Rangers winger Jamie Murphy scored his third goal in three games in a dazzling display as the Light Blues picked up a 2-0 win over Hearts at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.
The 28-year-old finished off a weaving run by stroking the ball beyond Jon McLaughlin in the Hearts goal and fire the Light Blues into a 1-0 lead.
Murphy has immediately made himself a key player at Ibrox after his loan-move from Brighton in the January transfer window and is showing exactly why the Gers wanted him.
With an agreement widely reported to be in place for a permanent deal in the summer, Murphy should have a big future at Ibrox and be an integral part of the side over the next few years and help the Gers end their seven-year wait for a major trophy.
Murphy’s form continuing to improve comes at a perfect time for manager Graeme Murty with a Scottish Cup quarter-final against Falkirk and an Old Firm clash coming in the next few weeks.
The 28-year-old has been causing all sorts of problems for opposition defences as he continues to settle into the starting XI at Ibrox and build an understanding with his new team-mates.
Murty keeps repeating that his Gers side aren’t where he wants them to be yet and it’ll only be at the end of the season that fans will get to see them at their best – which can only be a promising sign with how they seem to have been clicking in recent weeks.
