Rangers manager Graeme Murty is seen during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Aberdeen at Ibrox Stadium on January 24, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Rangers youth coach, Graeme Murty, is a popular choice to be the next manager of Reading.


Murty, who managed Rangers on an interim basis last season, spent more than a decade on the English club's books as a player.

He captained Reading for much of that time, as the Berkshire club rose from what is now League One to the Premier League.


And after Paul Clement's sacking as Royals manager on Thursday, the Rangers man's name is on many fans' lips.

This is what they're saying on Twitter...













Having coached at both Southampton and Norwich City, Murty was placed in charge of Rangers' development squad during Mark Warburton's tenure two years ago.

The former Scotland international was asked to lead the Gers on a temporary basis after Warburton's sacking, and again after Pedro Caixinha suffered the same fate as his predecessor.


Murty returned to his previous role ahead of this season, with Steven Gerrard taking over as permanent manager at Ibrox.

Would the Rangers coach be a good appointment for Reading?
