Graeme Murty: This is the last thing on my mind while in charge of Rangers
Graeme Murty has revealed money is the last thing he is thinking about after seeing his reign as interim Rangers boss extended until the end of 2017.
Murty was handed the reins after Pedro Caixinha was sacked on October 26th and has been in charge of the Gers’ last six games.
After Derek McInnes’ decision to remain with Aberdeen, Murty has now been left in charge until after the Old Firm derby with Celtic on December 30th.
Despite being in the hotseat, Murty admits he isn’t concerned with a pay rise fitting with his short-term position.
“I am Rangers Under-20s coach,” Murty said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“The last thing on my mind is finance.

“To be honest I wouldn’t expect to be paid as manager as I am not that.”
Murty has won four of his six games in charge since replacing Caixinha on a temporary basis and has helped the Gers get firmly back into the race for second in the Scottish Premiership.
The Gers face Ross County at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon in the Scottish Premiership and could re-take second in the table with a win over Owen Coyle’s side.
The Gers are currently three points behind Aberdeen after playing one game fewer than Derek McInnes’ side.
Leaders Celtic are a further seven points ahead in the table going into the hectic festive schedule.
