Motherwell legend Jim Paterson thinks bringing Rangers outcast Jamie Murphy back to Fir Park would help the Steelmen secure third in the Scottish Premiership this season.
Paterson played with Murphy at Fir Park earlier in the winger’s career and has watched as he’s been left on the sidelines following his return from a serious knee injury.
Murphy’s Rangers future doesn’t look great and his former team-mate thinks his experience would really help Stephen Robinson’s young side finish best of the rest.
“He’s a player that would really help the squad when they are under pressure in games with all the experience he has went on to get,” Paterson told the Daily Record.
“Aside from that, he’s an attacking threat that can bolster the game, if they want to bolster the squad in January he’s a great signing.
“They have put themselves in such a great position if they can keep the squad together next month and add an experienced head I just can’t see past them getting in the top three.
“That should be the aim at least for the season.”
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Murphy head out on loan in January and Motherwell could be a potential destination for the wideman.
Getting games regularly is crucial at this point of his career and it doesn’t look as though he’ll force his way into Steven Gerrard’s plans any time soon.
With the likes of Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo, Greg Stewart and Sheyi Ojo ahead of him, Murphy’s days at Ibrox look numbered.
