“Talking to Neil Lennon and his staff after the game he was really impressed with us, which I suppose is really easy when you’ve won the game,” Murty told The Glasgow Evening Times.

Only way is up

Rangers have progressed well under Murty, and although the team lost to Hibernian, there is no doubt that the Gers can still finish second in the Scottish Premiership this season.

The Rangers players are playing with confidence at the moment, and although they are bound to slip up from time to time, the fans should be optimistic about the future.

Rangers are back in action on Tuesday evening when they take on Partick Thistle away from home at the Firhill Stadium in the Scottish Premiership.
