Murty Sacked As Rangers Manager As Fans Rejoice Over The Possibility Of An Incoming Steven Gerrard!

Rangers have decided to part ways with their interim manager Graeme Murty earlier today. The 43-year-old has been sacked by the Gers after suffering a humiliating 5-0 defeat at the hands of Celtic in their last league encounter. The Glaswegian club released a statement which said, “He will take some time to consider his options, which include returning to his role at the Rangers academy,”

Murty was handed the full-time managerial role at the Ibrox Stadium last December on an interim basis until the end of the season. However, it appears that he has been “relieved of his duties” as the manager of Rangers with a home match against Kilmarnock looming on the horizon. The Gers also added,  “Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take charge of the team for the three remaining matches of the season.”

“Rangers are grateful to Graeme, who did not hesitate when asked last October to become interim manager after the departure of Pedro Caixinha and then, at the turn of the year, when he was offered the role as manager until the end of the season.

“Graeme has had to contend with difficult and challenging circumstances but conducted himself in a thoroughly professional manner. He will take some time to consider his options, which include returning to his role at the Rangers Academy.

“Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson have already started preparing the team for the match against Kilmarnock on Saturday and they will be in place for the two remaining fixtures, against Aberdeen and Hibernian.”

Let’s take a look at how some of their fans have reacted on Twitter.

Some people saw the lighter side of things.

While other supporters started to bring Steven Gerrard into the equation, amidst speculation linking the Liverpool legend with the now, vacant managerial position at Rangers.

One supporter expressed his pride of being a Rangers fan.

One Liverpool fan backed Gerrard for the Teddy Bears job.

It was reported earlier this week that Steven Gerrard was a potential candidate to take up the managerial role at Rangers. However, the Teddy Bears have refused to comment on this speculation stating, “The club hopes to be in a position to comment further on the managerial situation in the near future.”

The Gers are currently in the third position in the Scottish Premiership table with a tally of 65 points after playing 35 league fixtures this season. There is an increasing need for them to steady the ship ahead of the new campaign and Liverpool Under 18 coach Steven Gerrard could be the answer. However, he is relatively inexperienced as a football manager which makes it a huge gamble for the Glasgwegian outfit to appoint him.
