‘MY CELTIC SUPPORTING DAD GAVE ME DOG’S ABUSE WHEN I WENT TO ZOMBIES,’ MURTY

1
GRAEME MURTY admitted he got stick from his Celtic-supporting dad when he accepted a job at Ibrox.
The Sevco Rangers hand-standing stand-in boss will have his last game in charge of the team in the High Noon shoot-out with the champions at Parkhead today.

New gaffer Pedro Caixinha, Murty will take over tomorrow and Murty will resume his old job as the Under-20s coach.

But he joked that when he left Norwich to take on the role, his father Edward and the rest of his Glaswegian family gave him dog’s abuse.

Murty said: “It’s fairly well known that my dad and all his family are from Glasgow.

“So, I was brought up understanding the history of this derby game, knowing what it’s all about and what the occasion means.

“He’s still a Celtic fan now. All of the family are Celtic supporters and they reiterated that to me earlier this year.

“I met up with them and I got four hours of absolute dog’s abuse.

“They said: ‘What are you doing?’ And I said: ‘This is what I’m doing.’ Then I sat back and accepted their backlash.

“The thing is, my old man is a great believer in self-determination. He better want me to beat Celtic!

“I’m reasonably content that he’ll want me to do really well. He’ll give me some stick, but, deep down inside, he’ll want me to do really well at Rangers (sic).”

Murty looked ahead to this afternoon’s confrontation and said: “This game will be very new to me. There’s no doubt this will be like nothing I’ve ever seen before.

“This could be a seminal moment in my life, not just my coaching career. It will be something to reflect upon.”
Murty’s dad ain’t ever going to cheer that mob on.
