re­warded in due course if he suc­ceeded in do­ing that in fu­ture.

“You think about the peo­ple who have sat in the seat I’m cur­rently in and it’s wild,” he told the Train­ing Ground Guru web­site.

“It is still very, very spe­cial to me. I’ve en­joyed it. What I’d like to do is con­cen­trate on do­ing the job and not wor­ry­ing about what might hap­pen in the fu­ture.

“I’ve had lots of ques­tions. Do you want it? Do you think you should have it? But I just want to crack on with it.

“The rea­son I got into coach­ing is to help play­ers get bet­ter and per­form. If I’m do­ing that, you will even­tu­ally get to the level you’re sup­posed to be at.”

Mean­while, Murty has re­vealed the coach­ing and back­room staff at Auchen­howie had jointly de­vel­oped a “game model” which will be fol­lowed by all sides at Rangers dur­ing the sum­mer.

He is con­fi­dent the game model will help more aspir­ing pro­fes­sion­als to fol­low in the foot­steps of Jamie Bar­jonas, Ryan Hardie and Ross McCrorie and progress from the youth sides into the first team seam­lessly in the fu­ture.

Murty said: “We went to the per­for­mance cen­tre in Largs dur­ing the close and we thrashed it out.

“We changed our ter­mi­nol­ogy, our curriculum, our prin­ci­ples and our sub-prin­ci­ples. We made sure it all fit­ted to­gether. We’ve got some­thing we are quite proud of, but it’s al­ways evolv­ing.

“We’ve had a lot of vis­i­tors and they’ve tended to walk away say­ing the cul­ture runs through ev­ery­thing.

“This isn’t just on pa­per, we are liv­ing it ev­ery day.”
