Murty must transform Rangers-mad trio into becoming core of side for years to come

Rangers manager Graeme Murty added his fifth new player to his squad in the January transfer window when he completed the signing of Greg Docherty from Hamilton on Thursday night.
The 21-year-old signed a four-and-a-half year deal at Ibrox to join his boyhood heroes and is one of a trio of current first-team players who could make up the core of a strong Rangers side for years to come.
In Docherty, Ross McCrorie and Jason Cummings, Graeme Murty has a trio of Rangers-mad players who all know what it means to play for the Gers while still having their best years well ahead of them.
McCrorie has already proven to be a revelation since coming into the first-team in September while Cummings has shown he’s more than capable in Scotland before and didn’t have a terrible record down south either.
Docherty is also very experienced for his age with over 100 appearances for Hamilton by age 21 so should be able to come in and contribute immediately to Murty’s side.
The Gers also have both McCrorie and Docherty tied down on contracts until 2023 and while Cumming is only currently on loan from Nottingham Forest, the Ibrox side have an option to make it a permanent move in the summer.
Manager Murty’s future beyond the end of the season is still up in the air but he’s putting together the core of a side which could be playing for Rangers well into the future.
In other Rangers news, Murty has confirmed the club are looking to get more deals over the line before Wednesday’s deadline.
