Men's Football Rangers boss aiming for highest finish possible in the league

RANGERS boss Graeme Murty has told his players to “aim high” as they bid to cut the gap at the top of the Premiership to six points this weekend.

The Light Blues moved second with a 5-3 victory at Hamilton last Sunday, sparking debate over whether Scotland has a title race on its hands.

Rangers have only added to back-to-back league wins once this season, but the visit of Hearts today offers a chance to improve on that statistic following victories over Partick Thistle and Accies.

And with leaders Celtic facing third-placed Aberdeen tomorrow, Rangers know victory would improve their position one way or another.

Murty said: “We will finish where we deserve to finish at the end of the season. We will be the team we want to be or closer to the team we want to be by the end of the season.

“But this team is still coming together. We are still in a position where we are improving all the time.

“If we can carry on getting positive results, who knows what might happen?

“I said to the players just to aim high. Don’t worry about anything else, just aim high and be as competitive as we can all the way through the season and have a positive end to the season.”
