Murty has handled first Rangers transfer window like a veteran
Rangers manager Graeme Murty is coming to the end of his first transfer window as a first-team manager but has handled it like a veteran.
The Gers boss and director of football Mark Allen – a rookie in his own respective role too – have made what look like being some really good signings this month while starting to clear out some of the unwanted players in the squad they took over from Pedro Caixinha in October.
Murty has only had 20 competitive games in charge of the first-team squad is looking more and more comfortable in the role as he essentially auditions for a long-term contract until the end of the season.
Under the former Scotland international, the Light Blues look a lot more resilient and don’t appear as if they’ll collapse under the slightest bit of pressure from an opposition team.
The signings Murty and Allen have made this month have only added to that with the likes of Jason Cummings, Jamie Murphy and Russell Martin looking more than capable of being able to handle the pressure that comes with playing for a club the size of Rangers.
The recent bid from China for Alfredo Morelos – and Murty’s subsequent handling of it – can only leave fans impressed with the way the 43-year-old is settling in as manager and looking more and more like a Rangers manager.
There’s still a long way to go before the end of the season, and anything could happen between now and the final whistle of the Scottish Cup final, but even Murty’s biggest critics must be starting to be won over by the Gers boss.
