As if the search for a new manager wasn’t embarrassing enough already, the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern couldn’t believe the fact that Derek McInnes decided to stay at Aberdeen, when it seemed as if he’d move to Ibrox.
Indeed, our local Light Blues are absolutely furious with the manner in which everything ended and can’t believe the fact the Gers will now have to move on to other targets. After such a public rejection, those propping up our bar just don’t know where the club are supposed to go next.
With that in mind, comments from Scotsman journalist Barry Anderson on Twitter have proven rather interesting. He’s revealed that Graeme Murty is likely to remain in charge of the first-team and all it’s affairs until at least the end of the year, with the Gers playing SIX more league games between now and the end of the campaign.
Graeme Murty will continue as interim manager of Rangers until at least the end of the year. Looks like the youth coach is getting an extended interview for the main job.

Rangers play some fairly big games between now and the end of the season, against rivals Hibernian and Celtic. As you can imagine, fans are keen to see improvement against such teams and Murty faces a big task to front up this mess from those behind the scenes.
