Murty is not convinced he's the man to get Rangers flying again

By Gavin McCafferty

Rangers caretaker boss Graeme Murty will spend his short-term assignment determining whether or not he is cut out for management.

The club's Under-20s coach was quick to state that Rangers needed a "stellar name" after he stepped into Mark Warburton's shoes on an interim basis less than two weeks ago.

And he further signalled it was doubtful he would apply for the job as he looked ahead to his third match in charge, against the Ladbrokes Premiership's bottom club Inverness tomorrow.

"The feeling will be and has been that I'm going to take this period to assess whether I am cut out for it or not," Murty said.

"I don't mean in terms of tactical or technical knowledge, just in terms of temperament, whether this is an environment I want to operate in or whether I want to be more of a developmental person. But I will take my own time in assessing that."

The club stepped up their search for a successor to Warburton by beginning the formal interview process for the manager's job and the position of director of football. But Murty said: "I haven't heard anything. As soon as I hear, I will believe it. Until then, I will just carry on."
