Murphy arrived in Glasgow on Thursday afternoon to undergo a medical with the Ibrox giants and was widely expeced to be unveiled as the Gers’ second signing of the transfer window on Friday.
An agreement had yet to be confirmed by either side when the Light Blues jetted out from Edinburgh airport on Saturday morning although the Gers are still hopeful that Murphy will link up with them at their Florida training base in the next few days.
The 28-year-old was a key part of Brighton’s push for promotion from the Championship last season but has found game time much harder to come by in the Premier League with only a handful of appearances to his name this season.
The Gers have already signed Declan John to a permanent deal and brought in QPR midfielder Sean Goss so far in the transfer window.
While in America, Rangers will face Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians in the Florida Cup before returning to domestic action against Highland League minnows Fraserburgh on January 21st.
