Murty in no mood to answer questions on his future

16th April 2018, 17:39 by Simon Barlow

Graeme Murty said it would be "churlish" to discuss his Rangers future in the aftermath of Sunday's 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat.

Murty apologised to Rangers supporters after his side was thrashed by Celtic at Hampden, admitting the humiliating loss was his lowest moment in football.

The 43-year-old, who has only been put in charge of the Ibrox club until the end of the season was immediately asked what he would say to the Rangers fans who left in their thousands before the final whistle.

“I would apologise to them for the game," he replied. "I would ask for the patience and ask them to keep believing, but we can’t keep asking it.

“We have to put a performance worthy of their support. We didn’t do enough to make them want to stay in the stadium today.”

Asked what he thought the defeat meant for his own position, he said: “I’m not going to talk about my role. I think it would be churlish and selfish to talk about my own situation.”

Murty confirmed he will speak to Andy Halliday, who responded furiously to being replaced by Josh Windass six minutes before half-time, about his reaction after he had been substituted this week.
