My role at Rangers is up to people who are far above me: Murty

 

By Gavin McCafferty

Graeme Murty is feeling more "content" in his role as Rangers caretaker manager but does not feel he should need to apply for the job on a permanent basis.

The club's development coach is looking to secure a hat-trick of Scottish Premiership wins since Pedro Caixinha was sacked when Hamilton visit Ibrox today.

Murty had been given no update on the recruitment search before his pre-match media conference, but Rangers look set to step up the process next week.

The club declared seven days earlier they expected more applications for the post by the end of this week and would then draw up a shortlist.

Murty is in his second spell in interim command and he revealed he had not applied for the top job.

He said: "I don't think I should have to. I'm here, I'm a Rangers employee, what role I have at the club is up to people far above me.

"As far as I'm concerned, I will do the best at whatever job they see fit to put me in."

Murty is in regular contact with director of football Mark Allen, who is spearheading plans to compile a list, although Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes remains the clear favourite.

He admitted he had not enjoyed the 3-1 win over Hearts which kicked off his second stint, but he is feeling more at ease in the role.

"I'm no more relaxed," he said. "I don't really do relaxed. What I am is more content in what I'm doing. The relaxation and happiness won't be there, but being content in what you're doing, making sure you have given the players what they need. I'm more happy in the content of my sessions, so the players are getting my vision of the game.

"I think the players are in a good place but you have to make sure they translate that into a performance."

Murty revealed Graham Dorrans would not need surgery after seeing a specialist over an ankle problem, but the midfielder will miss the visit of Accies.

"I haven't got a timescale but as soon as we get that it will come out," he added.
