With just three games left in the season, Rangers interim boss Graeme Murty has departed as manager

Murty took over at Ibrox in October following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha and was expected to be in charge until the end of the season.

At the weekend, Murty was in charge as Celtic defeated Rangers 5-0 at Celtic Park to claim their seventh consecutive Scottish league title. It was Rangers' second heavy Old Firm defeat in a fortnight.


After the match, Murty did not speak to the media. It was reported that he did so following advice from friends.

In a statement, Rangers said that Murty had been relieved of his duties.

Graeme Murty has this morning been relieved of his duties as manager of Rangers.

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.

The club hopes to be in a position to comment further on the managerial situation in the near future.

The past six months has been Murty's second temporary spell in charge. He also took over between the sacking of Mark Warburton and the appointment of Caixinha last year.

Over the past week, it has been reported that Steven Gerrard is likely to take over as Rangers manager for next season. The 37-year-old is said to currently be in talks with the club.
