It’s been a weird few weeks at Rangers, especially with the ongoing saga over the sacking of former boss Mark Warburton and things got a little stranger yesterday.
The club are now under the caretaker charge of former Reading full back Graeme Murty and he took the phrase ‘being animated on the sideline’ to a whole new level during the ‘Gers 2-1 away defeat to Dundee. It also happens to be the first time in 25 years Dundee have beaten Rangers at Dens Park, with their last win coming in August 1992.
First half strikes from Mark O’Hara and Kevin Holt gave the home side a nice cushion going in at the break, but Murty’s Rangers came out fighting in the second period halving the deficit with just under a half hour remaining thanks to a goal from Joe Garner.
With nine minutes to go Harry Forrester had a golden opportunity to level matters, but missed from six yards out. Understandably Murty was gutted to see him miss, but decided to show his frustration by bizarrely rolling over backwards and standing on his head.
It’s certainly one of the most unusual things we’ve seen in a technical area, but they do say the managerial business is a crazy game. You can watch the incident for yourself below:
