Graeme Murty isn’t Concerned About His Rangers Future After Motherwell Draw

Graeme Murty isn’t Concerned About His Rangers Future After Motherwell Draw

Graeme Murty isn’t concerned about his future after Rangers‘ 2-2 draw with Motherwell.

The English manager appeared disappointed following his side’s performance in the early Scottish Premiership game at Fir Park.

The Glasgow side just didn’t get off to a good start in the game, losing two early goals to Curtis Main and Alan Campbell before going into the break 2-0 down.

Fortunately for Murty and his team, they managed to recover and get a 2-2 draw thanks to goals from James Tavernier and Jamie Murphy.

But it’s three games without a win for Rangers and, as the end of the season draws closer, more questions will  come about Murty’s future.

Asked after the game, the former Under 20s boss was unwilling to talk about his job, but did say he would be honoured to continue as manager.

Speaking to BT Sport, Murty said: “Anyone who comes and works for this fantastic football club is honoured to work for them and I’d be honoured to take the job forward.

“But today is not about my status, it’s not about my job. I appreciate the questions will keep coming. I’ve got a job to prepare a really, really good squad of players to deliver more than they did today.

“They’ve shown glimpses of what they’re capable of, but it’s our task collectively to do more than we did today.

“Until I’m told otherwise, I’ll continue to do that to the best of my ability.”

Murty’s role will continue to be debated as Rangers move towards the end of the campaign – and we may get a clearer idea of what will happen once they play Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final next month.

He was only appointed on a permanent basis earlier this season, with Rangers confirming that the position would be reviewed in the summer.

But it’s been inconsistent over recent games and that’s led to plenty of doubts about him being the right man for the job.
