THE Rangers players’ sole focus is on their next match with Hamilton Accies according to defender Danny Wilson.
The 25 year-old insists the continuing search for a new manager is doing nothing to distract the squad from the matters in hand – winning football matches.
Wilson was speaking today as he promoted the sale of half season tickets at Ibrox Stadium, and also praised the impact of caretaker manager Graeme Murty.
Wilson explained: “We as players just need to get on with it. We’ve done it in the last two games after the manager left and we have managed to pick up two wins, so as players, you can’t really focus on needing a manager in.
“Murty has come in and done a great job so far, and I’m sure if he is asked to continue he will continue to do so and we as players just need to give our full backing to whoever is in charge.
“With the manager going and Murty coming in, he is a safe pair of hands. Some of us have worked with him before and we have a lot of new faces who haven’t – but he has come in and handled himself impeccably well.
“We as players have responded with two victories, and, like I say, if he is asked to take over for a bit longer then we will give him our full backing.
“He sits in front of the press and handles himself very well, and when he’s in the changing room, he does the exact same.
“Different managers have different approaches, and I don’t know who coming in would get the best out of us. We as players need to take a bit more responsibility though.
“I have heard Murty talk about us taking more ownership and things like that, and I think he is spot-on with that. We as players need to look and say that’s another manager gone – and that’s two this year.
“We need to step up and really start performing.”
Wilson also spoke about the strong spirit in the Gers squad, explaining: “I think there always has been. The thing we’ve just not had enough of is consistency and victories. We have had two wins on the bounce there and we will be looking to get another one once the international break is over and just keep continuing the way we are going.”
