Mark Warburton Calls For Rangers Fans to be Patient With Graeme Murty

Mark Warburton Calls For Rangers Fans to be Patient With Graeme Murty

Mark Warburton has called for Rangers fans to be patient with Graeme Murty.

The former Ibrox manager was on Sky Sports News this morning giving his opinion on a whole host of topics and discussion unsurprisingly turned to his old club.

He spent just under two years with the Govan side before leaving in controversial circumstances last year.

Warburton was replaced by Pedro Caixinha before the Portuguese boss was sacked and replaced by Murty, who the former Nottingham Forest manager actually brought to the club as youth coach.

Murty has done a great job steadying the ship at Ibrox and still has an opportunity to finish second in the Premiership and win the Scottish Cup this season.

But is he the man for the job long term? He’s first team manager until the end of the season at least, but Warburton has called for patience from the fans if Murty gets it for longer.

Speaking on SSN, Warburton said: “Graeme’s come in and he’s earned the respect of the squad. He’s got the crowd on side and he’s done a very good job.

“As I say, if you’re going to give Graeme that chance, be patient with him. I keep repeating expectations, Rob – that’s the key.

“If the fans think he’s going to immediately challenge Celtic next year and, if he’s not sack him by Christmas, you’re going to have the same old problems.

“Give the man a chance, give him the time, give him the backing, verbally and financially, to manage a club of that stature.”

Murty had been flying up until losing 3-2 to Celtic at Ibrox almost two weeks ago and his side followed that up by losing 1-0 at home to Kilmarnock last week.

So he’s got a big job on his hands to recover again and find some good form going into the Cup semi-final against Celtic next month.

Do you agree with Warburton? Will Murty get that patience?
