Graeme Murty has refused to hand over the Rangers job without a fight.

It is understood that former Liverpool and England skipper Steven Gerrard is the “front-runner” to take over this summer.
But interim boss Murty - whose deal expires at the end of the season - put on a bullish display as he claimed four wins, starting against Celtic on Sunday, could convince Ibrox chiefs he should carry on next term.
He said: “I’m in the role currently. I love the role and will do everything I possibly can to keep it. I’ll be fighting as hard as I can in these last four games to finish as high up the table as I possibly can.
“I think I’ve done a good job so far and I am desperate for the opportunity to bring in my own players and put my real stamp on the team.
“The club knows I want this job. If I win the next four games, you never know. Why not? Go win the next four games, finish in Europe, finish high up and then I think I’ll have fulfilled the remit I was given when I first came in to the letter - and I doubt quite honestly if there is anyone else who could have done it as good as I have for a first job.”
