Rangers senior man could transform into Ibrox icon with unlikely success

Rangers manager Graeme Murty wasn’t exactly the overwhelming choice to succeed Pedro Caixinha as manager when the Portuguese was sacked in October – but the former Scotland international has a chance to make himself an Ibrox icon now after turning the Gers around.
Murty has managed to haul the Gers to within six points of Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic and has re-ignited talk of a title race after years of the Hoops having almost no challenge whatsoever for the title.
Murty’s future beyond the end of the season is still up in the air but if the 43-year-old can somehow secure the unlikeliest of title wins and lift the Scottish Premiership come May, he’ll have written his name into folklore at Ibrox and be held up alongside some of the club’s biggest legends.
Whatever happens with the senior man’s future, the Gers boss has shown a fantastic level of development over the last few months and looks much more comfortable in the role now than he did back in October or November.
A title win is still a long-shot for the Gers this season but with Celtic dropping points fairly regularly and the Gers looking more like a Rangers team than they have in years, title number 55 is coming sooner rather than later for the Gers.
