Graeme Murty shares what two key Ibrox figures told him about Rangers' manager search

Rangers Head Coach Graeme Murty looks on during The Scottish FA Youth Cup Final between Celtic and Rangers at Hampden Park on April 26, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rangers have been bitterly disappointing so far this season.

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.

Gers interim boss Graeme Murty sat down for his pre-match press conference and opened up on a conversation he shared with Director of Football Mark Allen and Managing Director Stewart Robertson regarding the club's search for a permanent manager, as quoted by BT Sport.

Rangers have endured a totally underwhelming 2017/18 campaign in the Scottish Premiership thus far, and currently sit in fourth position in the table, nine points adrift of bitter rivals Celtic, having played a game more than the Hoops.

It is not entirely an exaggeration to say that the Glasgow giants are a club in crisis, as their search for a permanent manager continues, whilst the team struggles badly on the pitch.

The Gers have lost their last two league games, and confidence at Ibrox is at a dangerously low level, in all departments.

Murty though, explained how vital it is for the club to get the next appointment right, opening up on a conversation that he shared with two key figures at the Rangers, as quoted by BT Sport:

“I’ve discussed with (director of football) Mark Allen and I’ve discussed with (managing director) Stewart Robertson that this process is ongoing. 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."

Next up for the Gers is a home game against Aberdeen tomorrow night, and a win will be of paramount importance to their hopes of finishing inside the top two this season.
