Rangers manager Graeme Murty’s future is up in the air after the Gers suffered two consecutive Scottish Premiership defeats – but if the Gers do get rid of the senior man then they can’t take the cheap option in the summer.
Murty’s current deal expires at the end of the season and after looking a like a shoo-in a few weeks ago it now appears the Gers could now move in a different direction in the summer.
If the Gers board are serious about trying to close the gap to Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership then they need to dig deep and bring in a proven, successful manager to try overthrow Brendan Rodgers’ side.
When Celtic finally took the plunge and got rid of Ronny Deila, their board also found themselves in a similar situation and forked out the cash to bring Rodgers to Glasgow – and have been well repaid by the Northern Irishman.
Although there arguably isn’t a stand-out candidate to move for if the Gers do decide to replace Murty, director of football Mark Allen and the Gers board will need to use their extensive contacts in the game and get the best man in that they can.
If they don’t, and decide to cut a few corners and try save a few quid, then they are looking at the real possibility Celtic rack up ten titles in a row.
