Murty holds talks with Rangers chief King, details feedback he has been given
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has revealed he has held talks with Ibrox chairman Dave King about the progress being made on the pitch by the Light Blues.
Murty was handed the reins until the end of the season after Pedro Caixinha’s disastrous spell in charge and has taken the Ibrox side into second place in the Scottish Premiership.
The Gers have also embarked on a sizeable rebuild of the squad Murty inherited from Caixinha with five new faces in the door so far in the January transfer window.
Murty confirmed he’s held talks with King and revealed the chairman was “guardedly positive” about the work done by Murty so far.
“I sat next to him [King] at the Burns dinner. He is positive that we are on the right path and he is conscious that it has taken time to get back to where we are,” Murty said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“He wants all the talk about our football club to be about things on the pitch. But I won’t put any words in his mouth, if you want feedback on how he thinks we are doing I recommend you schedule an interview with him.
“The feedback I have had is guardedly positive because we are in second but it is not about one game, it is about making sure we sustain.
“That is a criticism that has been levelled at us all the way through. It is just one game and we need to sustain and if we do that I am sure we can have a positive second half of the season.”
The Gers returned to action after the winter break on Wednesday night when they brushed aside Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen 2-0 in a comfortable win for the Ibrox giants.
The result took the Gers above Aberdeen in the table into second-place and Murty will be hoping to continue that when his side face Ross County on Sunday afternoon.
After the Light Blues face Owen Coyle’s side on Sunday, they return north in midweek to face Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in their rearranged Scottish Cup fourth round tie for the right to face Ayr United in the last 16.
In other Rangers news, Murty has confirmed the club are looking to get more deals over the line before Wednesday’s deadline.
