Interim Rangers manager Graeme Murty has revealed why he won’t blast Rangers’ stars over their poor displays – admitting that there’s “no point” in going ballistic at his struggling side.
The Gers lost their second Scottish Premiership game in less than a week when the fell 2-1 to Dundee on Friday night – six days after Hamilton won at Ibrox in the league for the first time since 1926.
Murty was clearly furious in his post-match interviews on Friday night as the Gers blew an opportunity to leapfrog Aberdeen into second place in the Scottish Premiership.
The Light Blues face Aberdeen in back-to-back clashes over the next week but Murty admitted he wasn’t willing to verbally attack his players – even if it would make him feel better.
“There’s no point. That wouldn’t be professional,” Murty said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“It would devolve into something personal and destructive and it wouldn’t add anything to the group.
“It would just be me making myself feel better by making a player feel worse and I’m not prepared to do that.”
Murty has been in charge since being handed the reins in the wake of Pedro Caixinha’s sacking last month.
The interim boss won his first two games in charge before slipping to two defeats on the spin as Rangers’ season hangs by a thread before Aberdeen’s visit to Ibrox on Wednesday.
Two defeats to Derek McInnes’ side could see the Ibrox giants 12 points behind the Dons in the Scottish Premiership and facing an Old Firm clash at the end of December.
