Glasgow Rangers still have a lot of ground to make up in the Scottish Premiership table.
Gers temporary boss Graeme Murty sat down for an exclusive interview with Rangers TV, and offered high praise for his group of players, whilst refuting suggestions that there is disharmony present amongst the squad at Ibrox.
Rangers finally seem to be returning to somewhat near their best, following four darks years in the lower echelons of Scottish football, following their demotion to League Two in 2012, and the 43-year-old former Reading ace deserves a lot of credit for the manner in which he has managed to stabilise the Glasgow giants.
They currently sit in fourth position in the Scottish Premiership table, six points adrift of bitter rivals Celtic, but for the first time in a long time, there is genuine optimism emanating from Ibrox.
And Murty told Rangers TV how he believes that a good reason for his side’s recent upturn in form is the genuine harmony that is currently present at the club amongst the players, contrary to recent reports:
“I would like to praise their professionalism because it is not easy when a new voice and face comes in, it can be disconcerting but they have gone after it hard and worked really well. I have been impressed with the way they have integrated and interacted with one another which, if you believe reports from outside the club that was not always the case, but I haven’t found that to be true.”
The Gers will attempt to keep pace with the Hoops at the top of the table on Saturday, when they welcome Hamilton Academical to Ibrox, and nothing less than a win will do, if they harbour genuine ambitions of challenging for the title this season.
