The Ibrox caretaker manager was under pressure going into tonight’s game against an in-form Dons side, who sit second in the Scottish Premiership table.
Rangers had lost to Hamilton and Dundee previously, producing two very disappointing performances in those defeats.
But they were much improved tonight, helped by the performance of McCrorie and the rest of the team in getting the 3-0 victory.
Murty was understandably delighted post-match and reserved special praise for McCrorie for the shift he put in playing an unconventional role in centre midfield:
McCrorie is proving very popular with the supporters tonight too, with plenty taking to Twitter to praise the youngster.
And you’d expect him to line up in midfield again on Sunday when Rangers travel to Pittodrie to play the Dons again.
There’s only three points between the teams in the table and a positive result would see them draw level with their rivals going into a busy December period.
