Rangers duo suspension may have strengthened Murty position, but he must still go in summer
Despite the suspension of Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace, Graeme Murty should still be dismissed as Rangers manager at the end of the season.
The suspension of Miller and Wallace, for an alleged altercation with Murty after the Scottish Cup loss to Celtic, has bizarrely enough strengthened the Gers boss’ position at the club.
Two players who had been causing trouble have now been removed from the club, and according to Sky Sports, Murty agreed with the board’s decision to suspend the duo.
Despite this off-field distraction, it’s matters on the pitch were Murty has been failing the Gers.
The performance in the Scottish Cup defeat was dreadful, as the Light Blues went out with a whimper and were deservedly thrashed.

The team doesn’t seem to have recovered from losing to a 10 Celtic side at Ibrox last month, and Murty hasn’t done enough to arrest the slide that has taken place over the last month.
The defeat at Hampden has turned out to be the last straw for Gers fans who are dismayed with the way the club has been run, and it should be the last straw for the board and Murty as well.
After the league season is over, the Gers board should thank Murty for taking the job under difficult circumstances, keep him as youth coach and appoint a new manager to take the club forward.
