Rangers could finally be appointing a new permanent manager in a matter of days, and Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty are set to arrive Ibrox once negotiations are concluded.
It’s expected that interim Light Blues gaffer Graeme Murty returns to his position as head of the development squad, but a majority of the players wish he could become a part of the new backroom staff.
Murty has improved the players and results in what is his 2nd stint in temporary charge, leading them to 4 victories and 2 losses.
Gers midfielder Jason Holt believes the 43-year-old has what it takes to become a successful manage going forward, and that he can be of immense benefits to the new coaching crew.
The 24-year-old said of Murty: “All I can say is that since he was placed in temporary charge he’s been great. We would certainly welcome working with him for a longer period of time. But, that is not up to us.
“He has been great since he came in. All the boys have enjoyed working under him.
“It is a difficult situation for him and the players appreciate that. The main thing we can give him is 100 per cent hard work.
“We have given him that and he has given the same to us. It is good when these things come together.
“I think there has been a change from when he was asked to step into the role last season.
“It is hard stepping up from the under-20s but he has handled it really well. He has managed to put his ideas across in a short space of time.
“I think every manager has different philosophies and perspective on things. He has kept things relatively simple and what he has done has been great.”
Murty has been in charge since Pedro Caixinha was sacked 6 weeks ago, and given how impressive he has made Rangers, taking them to 2nd place after back-to-back victories against Aberdeen, he is no doubt deserving of a place in the management team McInnes will be assembling.
