'We can only hope' - Rangers fans want senior man exit after major development at English club

Rangers fans have been reacting on Twitter after Reading sacked manager Jaap Stam on Wednesday, with many making it clear that they want Graeme Murty to return to the Madejski.

The English Championship club announced on their official Twitter account on Wednesday that Stam had left his role at the club, opening up the possibility for Murty to exit Ibrox before the end of the season.

SkyBet have priced the Gers senior man as the 12/1 fourth-favourite to succeed the Dutchman, perhaps mainly due to his 11-year-long playing spell with the Royals between 1998 and 2009 when he made over 300 appearances.

Murty is only in charge of Rangers until the end of the season and after two defeats on the bounce to Celtic and Kilmarnock, fans have started to suggest that the former Under-20s boss is not good enough to get the job on a long-term basis.

After Wednesday’s major development at Reading, fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that they want Murty to quit Ibrox and return to the Madesjki.

One fan claimed that he can “only hope” that the 43-year-old leaves Govan.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Murty has done a good job in charge of Rangers and managed to steady a ship that looked close to imploding under Pedro Caixinha’s reign.

There was even talk of a title race two weeks ago before losing to Celtic, which certainly means that there has been massive progress under his charge.

In other Rangers news, fans have demanded that the club signs this Old Firm scourge in the summer, claiming he is better than Celtic’s Olivier Ntcham.
