DANNY WILSON reckons Graeme Murty has shown he has all the tools necessary to go on and be a manager in his own right.

And he hopes the Light Blues can give their interim boss the perfect send-off should the clash with Aberdeen tomorrow prove to be his final game in the dugout.

Murty has taken charge of five games since stepping in to replace Pedro Caixinha and saw his side earn a hugely significant 3-0 win over the Dons in midweek.

The 43-year-old has attempted to dampen the praise he has received for his efforts whilst working in challenging circumstances at Ibrox.

But defender Wilson insists he should have plenty of belief in his abilities after also securing victories over Hearts and Partick Thistle in recent weeks.

He said: “He always tries to down play his role since he’s come in but he’s been great. If it is his last game, we’re not privy to that information.

“If it is, we’d like to win first and foremost for ourselves to hopefully get an improvement in the league position.

“But also for him. He’s come in and handled himself incredibly well. We want to thank him for everything he’s done.

“We all respect him in that dressing room. If he is going back to the 20s, we want to send him back on a high.

“He lets you have an input. But he’s firm with his own beliefs in what he wants to be done. He doesn’t mind telling you that.

“I just like the way he coaches us. His training sessions are good and his ideas are good - as you saw the other night.

“He’s able to adapt. I think he’s got the makings of being a good manager in the future.

“I now he’s very happy with his role here with the 20s but he’s done great since he came in.

“I’m sure in the future we’ll see him as a manager somewhere.

“It wouldn’t surprise me [if he gets an offer]. But I think he’s said himself that he is happy in the role here at the club. Whether something else happens beyond that I’m not sure.

“He’s handled himself very well here. That’s a great credit to him.”

Rangers make the trip to Pittodrie with second spot in the Premiership in their sights after they recovered from the losses to Hamilton and Dundee with a well-deserved win over the Dons on Wednesday night.

It has been a poor start to the campaign overall for the Light Blues this term and the Scottish Cup is their only realistic chance of silverware in the coming months.

But Wilson knows there is still plenty at stake for Rangers as the Ibrox board get set to bring in a new boss sooner rather than later.

He said: “It’s still very salvageable. A lot of people have been writing it off and saying the season is a goner already.

“You can get high or low after wins and losses, but we are in a relatively good position if we win on Sunday so we’ve got half a season to play still and we’re all looking forward to it.

“We try not to take too much notice of what is being said. We know at times we haven’t been good enough and we’re trying to find that level of consistency.

“We do have the capability to achieve it, as we showed on Wednesday night, if we do play to that level we should be higher up the table than we are.

“Realistically, right now we’re third so before we have to get to first we have to get to second. We finished way, way behind last season and don’t want to be in that position again.

“Bit by bit we have to try and target second and then we can start to look above ourselves, but we’re not getting too far ahead of ourselves as we still have a lot of football to play.”
