Caretaker manager Graeme Murty has revealed that he is ready for Rangers to appoint a new manager and relieve him of his caretaker duties.
In an interview with the Scottish Sun, the 43-year-old shared that there still isn’t a “resolution” when it comes to finding a new manager but admitted he was ready for there to be one.
“I was ready from the first day, I’m ready to continue as long as I am needed,” Murty said before confessing, “but I am ready to hand the reins over to whoever the board see fit to take charge.”
Murty has been in temporary charge of the Gers since Pedro Caixinha was sacked as manager on October 26, after only seven months in the role and this could be seen as a shock admission that he knows he’s not going to get the job on a permanent basis.
Caixinha left the Light Blues fourth in the table, eight points adrift of Celtic, along with having oversaw the Gers elimination from the Scottish League Cup courtesy of Motherwell.
Despite revealing that he is ready for another manager to come in, the bookies still make Murty third favourite for the job at 7/1; with Alex Mcleish (11/10) and Derek McInnes (7/4) the only two candidates ahead of him.
Under Murty’s care, the Light Blues have played three games, winning two of them, but recorded a shock 2-0 defeat courtesy of Hamilton in their last game.
Ahead of playing Dundee in the league on Friday night, Rangers are fourth in the table with 24 points from 13 games, making them nine points behind bitter rivals and league leaders Celtic.
