Graeme Murty: Quitting would have been the easy way out for me

The disintegration of Rangers at Hampden last Sunday infiltrated all aspects of the Ibrox club. How much it even seeped into the mind of Graeme Murty, the Ibrox manager does not attempt to downplay. The 4-0 evisceration by Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final did not only end his prospects of being retained in the role beyond the six-month contract that the man formerly the club’s under-20s coach was handed at Christmas. Murty admits that the mortifying nature of his side’s capitulation meant there was a moment at the national stadium he considered quitting then and there.
