The former Rangers manager is currently employed as academy coach under Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.
A Rangers staff member has got fans of another club talking after being spotted at their fixture this weekend.
Graeme Murty, the former Rangers manager who is back coaching the Ibrox side's academy, watched Reading's 1-0 defeat against Middlesbrough from the Madejski Stadium directors' box on Saturday.
Murty, who spent 11 years at Reading and captained the Royals to the Premier League in 2006, was linked with the recently vacant boss's job there.
But even after the role was filled by Jose Gomes that same afternoon, speculation that the Scot could return from Rangers in some capacity refuses to go away.
This is what some are saying on Twitter...

No.2??— Tom OFlynn (@TomOFlynn5) December 22, 2018
Graeme Murty as assistant is more exciting than Gomes as manager #readingfc— Tom Beasley (@Tbeasle94) December 22, 2018
Gomes with Murty number 2?— Harrison Leigh (@HarrisonLeigh10) December 22, 2018

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 then 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.
