'Certainly got the ability' - Rangers ace Holt makes claim about manager
Rangers ace Jason Holt believes Ibrox caretaker manager Graeme Murty has shown that he has the ability to be a manager in his own right in the future.
Murty has been in charge of the Ibrox giants since Pedro Caixinha’s sacking after also taking the same role following Mark Warburton’s resignation in February.
Murty has led the Gers to seven wins in twelve games over his two spells in charge and is a popular figure with the Rangers fans.
Holt insists that he has seen enough over Murty’s two spells as interim boss to know that the Under-20’s head coach has all the skins needed to become his own man in the future.
“Every manager has got different ideas, philosophies and perspective on things,” Holt said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“Like I say, he has come in and kept things relatively simple, which is what he has had to do because it is a difficult situation and he has not got a lot of time to change anything.

“He has been great.
“I certainly think [he could be a manager].
“You have seen in the spells that he has taken over the first team at Rangers that he has certainly got the ability and the credentials and the attributes you need to become a manager.”
Holt played under Murty during both spells in charge of the first-team – and has featured for Murty’s Under-20’s – so has a good idea of what the former Scotland international brings as a coach.
Murty joined Rangers last August from Norwich City where he had been Under-18’s head coach before swapping East Anglia for the Gers Auchenhowie training base.
