Murty makes bold claim about other managers wanting Rangers attackers

By James Black

Rangers interim boss Graeme Murty has praised his side’s attacking players after scoring six times in their two games since Pedro Caixinha was sacked.

The Gers beat both Hearts and Partick Thistle after getting on the scoresheet three times as the Ibrox giants look to close the gap on second-place Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.

Veteran striker Kenny Miller scored twice against Hearts while under-performing Josh Windass has scored in each of the the Gers last two games.

The stand-in Rangers boss has also claimed that his attacking talent is the envy of most of the rest of the Scottish Premiership’s managers but still insists his side are more clinical.

“It shows we are in a good place and it shows there are goals to come from the team,” Murty said, as quoted by Rangers’ official website.

“I don’t think there are many managers in Scotland that would turn down the array of attacking talent that we have.

“We just need to make sure that we understand how and when to utilise that attacking prowess and be a little bit more clinical.”

Murty has impressed in his second stint in charge and has won over many Rangers fans with his side’s performances.

The former Scotland defender joined the 54-time Scottish champions last year and has already had an earlier stint in charge after Mark Warburton’s resignation in February.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is the bookies’ favourite to take permanent charge after leading the Dons to three successive second-place finishes in the Scottish Premiership and a Scottish League Cup win in 2015.

In other Rangers news, an Ibrox legend was delighted to see Kenny Miller back in the starting XI.
