Graeme Murty is edging closer to becoming permanent manager of Sevco.
The former York City defender has won two out of two since becoming caretaker boss with the Ibrox spin machine softening the supporters up for a lightweight manager.
Despite being linked with Steve McClaren, Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Alan Pardew the club’s desperate financial position dictates a cheap and cheerful in-house solution.
Wins over Hamilton Accies and Dundee should seal the job for Murty who will return to his youth team job at the end of the season to bring in a new name to sell season tickets to stop Celtic from going for eight-in-a-row.
Murty will preview the visit of Hamilton later this week but was given permission to speak to Training Ground Guru in a move to prepare fans for a permanent announcement.
“You think about the people who have sat in the seat I’m currently in, and it’s wild,” he stated. “It is still very, very special to me. I’ve enjoyed it. What I’d like to do is concentrate on doing the job and not worrying about what might happen in the future.
“I’ve had lots of questions – ‘Do you want it?’ ‘Do you think you should have it?’ – but I just want to crack on with it. The reason I got into coaching is to help players get better and perform. If I’m doing that, you will eventually get to the level you’re supposed to be at.”
Three weeks after sacking Pedro Caixinha no approach has been made to Aberdeen who are due a £1m pay out for the release of Derek McInnes.
