GRAEME Murty believes his players can make it impossible for Rangers not to keep him on as manager – by continuing their stunning run of form and winning every remaining game this season.

Development squad coach Murty was put in charge of the Ibrox first team until the end of the 2017/18 campaign back in December.

His side have moved into second spot in the Ladbrokes Premiership and booked a place in the quarter-finals of the William Hill Scottish Cup since then.

However, the 43-year-old knows his side, who are scheduled to play Falkirk in the last eight of the cup tomorrow, need to extend their five game winning run for him to get kept on beyond the summer.

“I don’t expect to have a conversation until right at the end of the season when we hopefully will have achieved something,” he said.

“We have achieved nothing now. We have made good steps and we have made a good start, but we need to continue.

“We have set the platform to really bounce into the latter half of the season and have positive end to the season. If we do that then maybe a conversation will be due.”

Murty said: “We do that by being brilliant from now until the end of the season. If we win every game between now and the end of the season it will be an interesting conversation.

“But, once again, it’s down to us to make sure this isn’t the highlight of the season. Getting plaudits and pats on the back at the moment is not where we want to be.

“We want to be talking about how excellent we were at the end of the season when we’ve got something to show for our efforts.”

Meanwhile, Murty stressed he was relaxed during the final hours of the Chinese transfer window on Wednesday – even though there was a possibility that Beijing Renhe could table another multi-million bid for his leading scorer Alfredo Morelos.

Morelos, who took his tally for the season to 17 with a goal in the 4-1 win over St Johnstone on Tuesday evening, will remain at Rangers for the foreseeable and is one of several players in talks with the Ibrox club about extending his contract.

But the Columbian’s manager admitted the form that his side have displayed in recent weeks could lead to clubs making offers for them during the summer.

“I can’t control what they are going to do,” he said. “I can’t control the amount of money those guys are going to spend. And the money is extraordinary at times.

“It’s just something you have to be prepared for. I’ve got no doubt come the summer there will be people looking at our team if we excel between now and then. They’ll be looking to raid it.

“That’s just the nature of the beast. We have to be prepared for it. There’s no point in bemoaning it. If people are looking at our lads, that will be because they’ve done really well. It won’t just be one player. It will be a few. But talks are ongoing with multiple people.

Meanwhile, Murty has insisted there has been no fall-out with Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway over midfielder Sean Goss.

He suggested on Monday that he would like to extend Goss’s stay at Ibrox after his loan deal expires in the summer – something that has provoked a furious reaction from his Loftus Road opposite number Holloway.

But Murty confirmed that Rangers director of football Mark Allen had spoken to his QPR counterpart Les Ferdinand and there was no issue between the clubs.

“Mark’s spoken to Les,” he said. “We understand the situation. Sean is a QPR player. Les has told me in no uncertain terms he’s going back to QPR.

“We understand that situation. What’s happening currently is the loan deal is working well for both parties. It’s working for us because we have a player playing really well.”
