Rangers chairman Dave King has finally confirmed what was long speculated without actually being officially announced and revealed that Graeme Murty has indeed returned to his old role with the Development Squad.
The ex manager had been told his old job was available in the event he wished to take it back up, and it appears the former Reading defender has decided he did.
The Dev Squad had been doing quite well under Billy Kirkwood in Murty’s absence, and the return of the former senior boss to his previous gig may be a slightly controversial decision following his stint in the first team.
Speaking on the official site, King said:
“I am truly delighted that Graeme chose to stay and will continue to play such an important role in the development of our youth.”
There had been slight doubts that Murty had been restored to his old role, given the lack of proper announcement about it, but King’s statement confirms it. And it is a decision manager Steven Gerrard has given his blessing to.
Hopefully Murty’s continued tenure sees further Ross McCrories breaking through.
