Murty has done what three previous Rangers managers failed to do in win v St Johnstone
Rangers racked up a comfortable 4-1 win over St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Tuesday night and Gers boss Graeme Murty has managed to succeed where the Gers last three managers have failed – by getting fans excited about the Ibrox giants.
The result takes the Gers to within six points of Old Firm rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership and fans are cautiously optimistic that the Light Blues could still nick the title from Brendan Rodgers’ side.
With the weather set to wreak havoc across Scotland on Wednesday night the Hoops’ Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee on Wednesday is at real risk of postponement meaning an Ibrox win over Celtic would see the Gers only three points behind their bitter rivals.
Gers fans – or Celtic fans for that matter – haven’t had a title race to look forward to in seven years and the prospect of lifting the title, regardless of how small, has fans excited about the Gers.
Murty could still conceivably come away with a league and cup double this season with the Gers still in the Scottish Cup and facing Championship opposition in the quarter-final.
There is still a long way to go in the season – including two Old Firm clashes – but the Light Blues support has reason to look forward to the coming weeks as they go into games with very little to lose and absolutely everything to gain.
