WES FODERINGHAM admits Graeme Murty has given his Ibrox squad a confidence boost as Rangers target an improved second half of the season.

The Light Blues recovered from their successive league defeats to St Johnstone and Kilmarnock with a 2-0 win over Motherwell in midweek.

And now they have victory against Celtic in their sights as they prepare for the Old Firm showdown at Parkhead this afternoon.

Murty has been confirmed as manager until the end of the campaign after initially being asked to step in following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha in October.

And keeper Foderingham knows where the Gers must improve in the coming months under the guidance of the 43-year-old.

He said: “I think we have been a little bit inconsistent. We have shown we can play great football in patches – and shown we can be very inconsistent as well.

“We need to find a medium between our high and our low and make sure that is our bottom. To make sure we are at a minimum of 6 out of 10 and not 3. That’s the most important thing for the second half of season.

“We have picked up points when we were maybe not expected to and dropped them when we were expected to get a result.

“There is a little bit more certainty around his (Murty’s) position. The boys know what’s going on.

“He has been brilliant with me. He was great even before when he stepped in on an interim basis.

“He is good at putting a smile on the boys’ faces and getting them full of confidence, which is a massive part of being a footballer.”
