Former manager Graeme Murty has reiterated his commitment to Rangers as he re-establishes himself at the helm of the U20s.

The former caretaker manager has intimated his desire to take the first team job at Rangers before the appointment of Steven Gerrard. Having retaken the reigns with the U20s, Murty has insisted he’s happy and going nowhere.

Murty told SunSport:

“I am enjoying being back and working with the boys and they give me everything they have every day.

“I love this club, I love my job and my life here, as do my family. I just want to crack on now with my job.”

Murty has spoken about the positive changes that’ve taken place in the Rangers youth department. He is relishing his new role and it shows the determination and integrity of the man that’s he’s returned to that position after leading the first team.

Murty had a rollercoaster for seven months after Pedro Caixinha was sacked at the end of October last year.

Murty more or less stabilised the ship at Rangers, in between some very poor results. Had his team not capitulated 3-2 against 10 men Celtic at Ibrox in March, the season might’ve ended very differently.

There is genuinely a good feeling and fondness for Graeme Murty at Rangers and supporters are grateful for the work he’s done for the club so far.

Having men who understand the pressure of Rangers working in the background can only be a good thing for our young players.
