The Ibrox side have lost only once in their last 11 matches after they demolished St Johnstone 1-4 on Tuesday night, to reinforce the job Murty is continuing.
Under his management skills and also since Jimmy Nicholl arrived, Rangers have now registered five straight wins in all competitions for the first time since March 2016, proving that the board should never have signed the last two managers, Mark Warburton and Pedro Caixinha.
Murty, Nicholl and ex Rangers 38-year-old-legend Peter Løvenkrands are rightfully cock-a-hoop about their progress and the changes they are continuing to make on the Rangers training ground in Milngavie.
Despite Celtic holding a fairly comfortable lead at the moment, hope is not entirely lost, as we could possibly catch the EastEnders for our 55th league title, but only if we keep on winning.
The background staff will be concerned that in the 36th minute in Perth, our keeper flapped at Liam Craig’s free-kick, however, Williams was unable to take advantage of Foderingham’s spill by ballooning his easy opportunity over the bar.
Fortunately, this time it didn’t cost us a goal, but later on, he and his defence allowed Jason Kerr to score with a free header to pull a goal back for the Saints.
Once again Foderingham mistimed the flight of the ball as it sailed over his head. It was inevitable that they would score from the simply-taken corner. If we have any chance of winning the league – it really has to stop – and finish now!
With Foderingham in goal and I hate to say this, we will continue to lose too many cheap goals. In fairness, Wes has improved immensely as a Rangers keeper and is usually a good shot stopper, but we are extremely weak at corner kicks, free kicks and cross balls, certainly not aided by the unconvincing pair in front of him either.
This continuing problem costs the team goals, points and league titles and you simply cannot allow it to go on next season; despite Murty changing his centre backs the obvious problem is still there. Signing Hearts 30-year-old, 6’ 3” keeper Jon McLaughlin is probably the cheapest and best option available to Murty.
To help with the problem this season, I am suggesting playing 3 centre backs at the back. Bates, Alves and Martin would hopefully allow Foderingham to stay on his line and leave it to his defenders to challenge for the high balls.
Depending on the quality of the opposition, this move could also allow Morelos and Cummings to forage a partnership upfront together, to cause further havoc to the opposing teams.
The Rangers fans are itching and looking forward to see Morelos and Cummings play together, especially at Ibrox, believing that we can actually score more goals than we are at the moment.
But we need to get that defence and goalkeeping sorted first.
