Big reason against Glasgow Rangers keeping Graeme Murty until end of the season

Rangers have still to decide who should replace Pedro Caixinha at Ibrox.

Rangers fans are waiting for the club to make their move as the club's managerial post remains vacant since Pedro Caixinha's sacking.

Graeme Murty has taken temporary charge at Ibrox, and results have been positive at this early stage.

The lack of progress behind the scenes could persuade Rangers to leave Murty in charge until the end of the season, given their steady performances on the pitch.

Rangers need stability and Murty has been able to provide that so far.

And while the Gers could elect to take the straightforward option and let him carry on until the end of the campaign, that would be a mistake.

Rangers need to think big, and this means making new signings in January who can help transform the club.

Murty being in temporary charge would send the wrong message.

New players want to see a long term plan, and this needs a new manager.

Rangers would be missing an opportunity in January if they do not appoint a permanent manager.

Every transfer window they stand still, Celtic pull further away, and Rangers can't afford for that to happen.
