Murty wants ruthless Gers

The Gers have made strides this season to get back to the top in Scotland but they remain some way off challenging local rivals Celtic's stranglehold at the top of the Premiership.

Murty's side sit third in the table, three points behind Aberdeen directly above them and 11 off leaders Celtic.

The boss has seen signs of improvement and development but he's now called on his players to make the next step, revealing being able to handle the pressure that comes with playing for the Ibrox side is key.

He said: 'At Rangers you have to thrive working under the pressure to win trophies. I am hungry for us to get better and to elevate our standards.

'We are moving in the right direction, but we will be better by the end of the season.

'The job of the squad is to become ruthless in all areas. If you get the chance to play you have to take your opportunity and make it yours.'
