Murdoch is confident Rangers have improved as the season has progressed, as they face their play-off campaign.

Speaking to the Evening Times, 20-year-old midfielder Murdoch expressed his belief that Rangers have improved since Stuart McCall was appointed head coach, standing them in good stead for a play-off victory.

The youngster said: “We have got ourselves together since then [McCall’s appointment]. We knew we had to get a run of results and we have managed to do that. We have been playing well lately and we are all confident that we can maintain our form this weekend and in the final weeks of the season.”

Prior to club legend McCall being named head coach, the Light Blues were is a state of disarray. Ally McCoist had been placed on gardening leave, before Kenny McDowall was appointed as caretaker boss.

The Gers were already out of the running for an automatic promotion place, and even their play-off campaign looked to be heading to an end, but McCall arrived at Ibrox, lost just one game, and looks to be securing Rangers a place in the play-off semi-finals.

The club legend is only on a contract until the end of the campaign, but it is hard to see past his permanent appointment considering his impressive turnaround.

He has started the club on a philosophy of good attacking football, far away from the classic wing-play system utilised by McCoist, and has been bringing through youth players to stabilise the future.

He has done a great job, and with the players believing in him, it is hard to look past Rangers winning the play-offs and securing a return to the top flight for the first time since their liquidation.
