RANGERS new signing Jamie Murphy was delighted that the Gers fought back against Corinthians in today’s Florida Cup match.
The attacker was a second half substitute in the match, setting up one of the goals as the Gers crashed four past Brazilian champions Corinthians after being two down at the break.
Speaking to RangersTV after the game, Murphy said: “I enjoyed it, you know at Rangers that’s what it’s all about.
“The spirit and the fight, so it was good to get the win for the fans who have traveled over and came from all over the world.
“When you are losing in a game, you always question whether the game is there to be won for you. We know we did things right, we worked hard as a team and we got the reward.”
Murphy set up Alfredo Morelos for one of his two goals, with Andy Halliday and James Tavernier scoring the other two as the Gers won their second match in the Florida Cup this season.
When asked about the goals scored in the game by the Gers, he said: “There was some great finishes in there. The first ball is a great ball in from Sean and then the other couple are great finishes by Alfredo Morelos.”
“With these kinds of strikers, you know that if you put the ball there then they are going to score goals.
“That’s my job, to try to help us to win games and assist goals and score them. Hopefully it keeps going, that’s the aim at Rangers. You want to win every game, so hopefully we’ll take that performance and form today into the league.”
Murphy joined up with the Gers squad a day late after securing his loan deal with the club and he’s found being away at the Florida Cup the perfect way to bond with his new teammates. He said:
“It’s been terrific. Sometimes when you go to a new team you don’t really get to know the boys for a couple of weeks because you only see them for a couple of hours a day.
“The fact that we’ve been away and we’ve all been together, I know has definitely helped me.”
