Rangers manager Graeme Murty could lift his first piece of silverware as Rangers boss if the Gers lift the Florida Cup and – while it might only be a glorified friendly – it shows that the Ibrox side aren’t a million miles from where they need to be as they try reel in Old Firm rivals Celtic.
The Gers’ second-half performances against both Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians have shown that the Gers are heading in the right direction after making two quality additions to the squad in January in Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy.
The comeback win over Brazilian champions Corinthians was a terrific show in resiliency by a Rangers side who many would have expected to collapse once they went two goals behind.
Coming out after the break and taking the game right to the opposition isn’t something Gers fans have seen much of in recent years when the Gers have been losing but against Corinthians they looked like a team who wanted to put things right and turn the score around.
There are still some clear problems for Murty to fix over the next few weeks and months but the Gers’ trip to the United States to participate in the Florida Cup will definitely have given the 43-year-old food for thought as the Gers get ready for the second half of the Scottish Premiership campaign and a crack at the Scottish Cup.
In other Rangers transfer news, it has been reported that Gers are homing in on a top flight player who wants to move to the Ibrox.
