Ibrox crisis deepens as Graeme Murty pulls a sickie!

Image for Ibrox crisis deepens as Graeme Murty pulls a sickie!

With the manager’s chair at Ibrox ominously vacant Graeme Murty has pulled a sickie.

Twice in the last five years the former Reading defender has found himself in the spotlight as Sevco struggled to find replacements for Mark Warburton and Pedro Caixinha.

When Steven Gerrard walked away to Aston Villa there was no mention of a caretaker in the club statement but a tweet today reveals that Murts won’t be anywhere near Murray Park in the week ahead.

Birthday boy Murty is currently Head of Elite Academy and the most senior coach at Ibrox after Gerrard took five key men with him to Villa Park.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his agent sign posted talks with the Ibrox hierarchy in London today but the former Dutch international flew back to Amsterdam with further talks with other candidates scheduled for the weekend.

As things stand it looks like Jimmy Bell and goalkeeping coach Colin Stewart will take training on Monday with most of the international stars returning on Wednesday to prepare for Sunday’s League Cup semi-final against Hibs.

    Will need a manager who is cheap and willing to work on a budget of zilch that takes lampard out but he is not short of a bob or two more south based i think but you never know,van the man not managed for while is he that desperate???.

    • Seppington says:

      For all the talk of Van Bronckhorst and de Boer etc. those guys will run a mile once they hear the Sevco answer to the question “What is the transfer budget going to be?”
      “Sorry, you’ll actually have to trim the squad a LOT before we can even think of buying anyone else” will only appeal to the true-blue dyed-in-the-wool knuckle-scraper fan ex-players, like Bomber Broon or Bawwy F. I saw one heidcase suggest Kris Boyd for it (“Great first club to start his management career!”), how funny would that be? Under him they could actually get relegated for real, instead of just pretending as if they were before….
