Graeme Murty

Where is Graeme Murty now?

After over 300 league appearances for Reading including two seasons in the Premier League, Graeme Murty retired from playing in 2010 after a brief spell on the South coast with Southampton.

A former club captain at Reading, Murty was an important member of the team which won promotion from the Championship to the Premier League with a record 106 points.

Whilst still an active player at Reading, Murty worked in local radio and also local television on a programme called Late Kick Off which he continued after hanging up his boots.

Keen to pursue a career in football coaching, Murty returned to Southampton in 2012 as a youth development coach at their academy but he left in July 2014 when he joined Norwich City as a youth development phase lead coach.

Having impressed his Norwich bosses with his under 16’s side, Murty was appointed head coach of the Norwich under 18’s side in July 2015.

In August 2016, Murty left Norwich City to join Scottish Premier League giants Rangers as their Head Development Squad Coach.

Murty was thrust into the limelight in February 2017 when he was appointed as Rangers caretaker manager ‘for the foreseeable future’, after Mark Warburton left his post as manager.

He took charge of the side for six games, winning three, drawing one and losing two before new manager Pedro Caixinha arrived and he went back to his development coach role within the club.

When Caixinha was sacked in October 2017, Murty was once again made caretaker manager and won six of his nine games before the club decided to appoint him as manager until the end of the season.

Murty was sacked by Rangers in May 2018 after two heavy defeats by arch-rivals Celtic the previous month (4-0 in the Scottish Cup semi final and 5-0 in the league).
