• Murty won six and lost three of his nine games in temporary charge
• Chairman Dave King ordered to make offer for most of club’s shares
Graeme Murty was handed the Rangers manager’s job until the end of the season on Friday, on a day when chairman Dave King was ordered to make an offer for most of the club’s shares after losing a court case against the Takeover Panel.
Murty, who has been assured that he will be given the final say on transfers next month, was nine games into his second spell of the year as caretaker, winning six and losing three after stepping up from his role as under-20s coach following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha in October. Derek McInnes was the No1 choice to replace the Portuguese but opted to stay at Aberdeen.
