“Graeme Murty has already been relieved of command at Ibrox,” claims Ibrox Noise

THE RANGERS supporters website The Ibrox Noise has just alleged that their manager Graeme Murty has been “relieved of command,” and will not be in charge for the first post split fixture this weekend against Hearts.

The site has describes the story as being based on “breaking rumours this hour”.

It states that there are various versions of the story doing the rounds among the despairing Ibrox insiders.

“Claims vary between him being completely axed at the club, to being restored to the youth setup, but the ugly performance, result and off-pitch aftermath of the Murty era are leading to allegations the 43-year old has finally run his race in Govan.

“The disaster that was yesterday’s Old Firm nightmare for Rangers has put Murty under an even bigger microscope than he already was, and with speculation being rife over the past month or two around the likes of Clarke, Robinson, De Boer, Jack, Keizer et al taking over, it does seem a matter of time before Murty leaves the post.

“We all knew it was only till season’s end anyway, but in a case of damage limitation the board are alleged to have decided to take action and dealt with it now.

“We cannot corroborate these claims as yet but we’ll keep you posted.”

If Ibrox Noise are correct then Brendan Rodgers will line-up against a fourth Rangers boss or caretaker boss a week on Sunday.

Loving Hurtin’ Monday? Might even tune in to Clyde tonight to hear Derek Johnstone’s suffering.
