Graeme Murty wants to end the season with silverware.

The rookie Ibrox boss has steered his side into second place in the Premiership and is a home win over Falkirk away from reaching the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.

Celtic stand between Sevco and their first ever trophies before the cold reality of another season of over spending takes root.

Four loan players will be returned to their parent clubs in May with the first £4m of season ticket money being used to pay off Close Brothers for the emergency loan that kept the season going.

Murty has been spouting upbeat management talk since Derek McInnes turned down the managers job and is determined to push for honours this season.

We can’t look at it and write ourselves off or say we are right in it,” the former Reading ace told the Daily Record about the title race.

You are ultimately going to be judged right at the end. You deserve to finish where we finish.

What we have to make sure is that we make each game meaningful and we have a very meaningful game at St Johnstone.

We have to go and perform. It will be difficult, teams are going to be well structured and frustrating.

We need to take care of our own business and if there is an opportunity later in the season to get some silverware we are in the right shape physically and mentally and ready to grasp the opportunities.”

Since Charles Green formed the club in 2012 they have lost out in 11 cup competitions with just one final appearance when Hibs edged them out in the 2016 Scottish Cup.

Murty is in charge until the end of the season but with no credible alternative the Ibrox board will have little option other than to extend his contract into next season.
