Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has mocked Rangers' ongoing search for a new manager after Ibrox caretaker boss Graeme Murty provided an update at his Tuesday press conference.

Murty took charge of Rangers more than a month ago after Pedro Caixinha's sacking, but the Glasgow giants are not yet close to making an appointment, according to the former Scotland right-back.

Rangers manager Graeme Murty is seen during the Scottish Cup Quarter final match between Rangers and Hamilton Academical at Ibrox Stadium on March 4, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

"There has been movement but we're not quite there yet, and I think that to get the next five, six, seven years right, we need to take our time now to get this appointment right," said Murty, as quoted by Sky Sports.

And Sutton, who spent six years at Celtic Park, could not resist a dig in Rangers' direction after the 43-year-old's comments.

He tweeted:

 That prompted Celtic fans to get involved too, some of whom are suspicious about the timing of Murty's comments, ahead of Rangers' AGM on Thursday.

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking to Talksport on Tuesday morning, ex-Rangers midfielder Ray Wilkins pleaded with the Ibrox powers-that-be to enlist the help of several club legends - including himself - in their quest to restore the club to its former glories.

Rangers have won two and lost two with Graeme Murty in temporary charge, and sit fourth in the Scottish Premiership standings - nine points behind Celtic having played a game more.
