Rangers fans here in the Tavern are desperate for Graeme Murty to get the permanent job at the end of the season, having enjoyed a successful campaign under the Englishman.
The Bluenoses will be hoping to inflict defeat on Old Firm rivals Celtic in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup, as this is their last chance to secure silverware in the current campaign. And, it looks as if this game is of even greater importance to Graeme Murty, as according to Charlie Nicholas’ column in the Express, he’s heard that if Murty doesn’t win the Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic next month then he may not get the managerial job on a permanent basis.
Graeme Murty has certainly enjoyed success in the current campaign as Rangers managed to give Celtic a run for their money, and look like securing a European spot for next season. Although, news that he might not be offered the permanent job in the summer if they fail to win the semi-final is a huge blow, as many of our local residents believe that he’s already done enough to warrant a future at the club.
So, supporters will now be hoping that their side can knock Old Firm rivals Celtic out of the Scottish Cup, however, this could prove rather difficult having failed to beat them in their last three attempts.
Rangers fans will be disappointed if this is the case, as Graeme Murty has single-handedly saved the club from the depths of despair. Indeed, with a European place looking likely and a chance to secure silverware in the Scottish Cup, many of our local residents will be hoping that this isn’t true after enjoying a successful season under the 43-year-old.
