Rangers board aren't doing themselves any favours with silence over senior man

COMMENT

Rangers have rapidly descended into a farce following the suspension of Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller for reportedly having an argument with manager Graeme Murty in the wake of the 4-0 Scottish Cup defeat by Celtic on Sunday – but as long as the board stay silent on Murty’s future then they only chip away what support they have.

Nobody who has watched the Light Blues collapse in the way they have since last month’s 3-2 Old Firm defeat at Ibrox will accept Murty being in charge next term – and after Sunday’s Hampden nightmare there are plenty of fans who would happily see the senior man go now.

As a big fan of Murty’s after the work he done with the club’s Under-20s, it would be harsh – and a bit pointless – to sack him with five games left in the season unless there is a new long-term appointment taking his place but the board need to come out and tell the fans now that he won’t be getting it.

It might seem like a no-brainer but it would actually buy Dave King and the rest of the Gers’ directors a little bit of breathing space to tell the fans it won’t be Murty and make an appointment in May or June, ahead of the transfer window.

With time, and patience, quickly running out, the Gers board need to do something before they find the bulk of supporters turn against them.
