GRAEME Murty speaks well about football and he clearly has an appreciation of what Rangers are all about and where the club needs to get back to.

And I think it was the right thing for him to be appointed as manager until the end of the season.

If the board are not sure who the next manager is going to be, then it was the only decision they could take. You can’t have uncertainty week after week.

There have been some really good results under Graeme in the last couple of months, but there have been some poor ones as well.

That is just where this squad, which is not his, is at right now and there is no doubt that he is working in difficult conditions at present.

All he can do is make sure the players are in the right frame of mind and to try and get the best out of them.

That is what makes a good manager, if you have ordinary players but you get them playing at their peak every week and you are able to get more out of them more often.

Graeme is the manager and he will get criticised even more than the players now when things don’t go well for Rangers. It is his responsibility now and he will have to take the flak.

Maybe the board don’t have anyone that can come in just now but have someone lined up to become the boss in the summer. We don’t know.

I don’t think, deep down, that Graeme will get the job beyond the summer. I think the Rangers fans are looking for a bigger name and someone that has got a track record behind them.

Whoever is in charge for next season, there is no doubt that it is a massive, massive job because you know that no matter what you do, the club across the city can do even more because they have got the money to do so.

The fans may not like the decision that has been made, but Graeme is the manager now. So, back him and let’s see where we go from here.
