Likely-outgoing Rangers manager Graeme Murty has admitted today that the speculation over Steven Gerrard has affected him personally.
After months of claiming he never thinks about himself in this job and it is all about the team, the 43-year old has finally revealed the talks with Gerrard bother him, and he has tried not to let that affect his doing the job.
“Yes it’s affected me (personally) but it doesn’t matter about me, it’s about the team.”
Looking white as a sheet, Murty spoke to the media before the ambush at Parkhead and in every sense appeared a dead man walking – and knew it.
Murty has been out of his depth as Rangers manager and while things went astonishingly well for 10 weeks (just like Mark Warburton when he first joined) after it become semi-permanent the wheels have come off in a manner Rangers fans are sadly used to seeing these days with their club.
Things desperately need to change.
