Murty delivers defiant verdict on Rangers title hopes
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has insisted his side will continue to push Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic “until the gap is mathematically impossible” as the look to win their first title in seven years.
The Gers are currently nine points behind their rivals in the table with ten games remaining although two of those are against Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Celtic have lifted the last six Scottish titles since the Gers’ financial meltdown in 2012 saw them have to climb back up the leagues and looked to be sure-fire champions again a few months ago as their Ibrox rivals languished in fourth.
Since Murty has replaced Pedro Caixinha as manager at Ibrox in October, the Gers have picked up more points than their rivals and could still steal the title.
Murty has defiantly insisted his side will keep fighting until there’s no chance they can win the club’s 55th top-flight title as they continue their recovery from the nightmare of 2012.
“Until the gap is mathematically impossible we will continue to push on each game,” Murty said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

The Gers have opened up a three-point cushion on Aberdeen in third and could close the gap to Celtic to six points with a win at McDiarmid Park on Tuesday night against St Johnstone.
With the defending champions not in action until the following night against Dundee, it gives Murty’s side a chance to heap a bit more pressure on their Old Firm rivals.
A title win for the Gers would rank alongside some of their greatest accomplishments after seven years without a major trophy and the club’s climb back to the top from Division Three.
