WES FODERINGHAM has revealed Graeme Murty predicted Rangers rout over Hamilton at the weekend.

The Gers stopper said the club’s caretaker manager used his team talk on Saturday to say someone would be on the end of a “doing” soon before his side went on to put six past Accies.

Foderingham thinks the resounding win is the perfect tonic ahead of Sunday’s Old Firm and hopes last week’s double of victories is the start of a good run of form.

The 26-year-old told RangersTV: “I think that win was massive; especially to win in that manner with how many goals we scored.

“I think we played well; we have played like that a lot this season and not really got the rewards in front of goal so it was good to get six goals on the board.

“Funnily enough Murts said in his team talk before the game that someone was going to get a doing soon and then we went out there and won 6-0.

“I think we are always confident when we go out on the pitch and we’re winning football matches.

“It is just a case of getting that little bit of luck or fortune and putting the ball in the back of the net when we get the opportunities.

“It is no secret that we went through a bit of a rough patch with everything going on off the pitch as well.

“I think it was important we got back to just winning football matches, doing what we do and trying to build some momentum.”

Foderingham confesses the team have enjoyed their spell under Murty’s control as the former Scotland international has slowly implemented changes.

The goalkeeper continued: “I think having him in charge on Sunday would make things a little bit easier, trying to keep things as normal as possible and we have had a couple of good results as well.

“For him it is a massive game as well and I think he deserves that opportunity to go out there in what looks likely to be his last game in charge and try and get a win as well.

“It would be good for him but good for us as well because it would keep things normal for the boys.

“He hasn’t changed that much, obviously he has tried to put his stamp on things but it is more of the same really.

“We play a certain type of football and we have tried to carry that on but he has said we need to be a little bit more clinical in front of goal so we have tried to work on that in training and that was evident in our last game.

“People spoke before but I think communication is massive and Murts is big on that as well and his door is always open, he is a very approachable guy.

“I think all the boys know they can go and knock on his door and speak to him.”
