Forgotten Glasgow Rangers winger Jamie Murphy has indicated that he wants to stay at the Ibrox outfit after having recently returned from injury.
The veteran attacker took to Twitter to express his thanks to the Gers support structure and indicate his determination to get back into Steven Gerrard’s first-team plans.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me over these last 14 months. Family, friends, teammates, staff and football fans from all over. I couldn’t have done it without you. Excited now to move on with the rest of my footballing career, which I hope will be in a blue jersey 💙 pic.twitter.com/I71sJdg3T1

“Thank you to everyone who has supported me over these last 14 months. Family, friends, teammates, staff and football fans from all over,” Rangers star Murphy tweeted.
“I couldn’t have done it without you. Excited now to move on with the rest of my footballing career, which I hope will be in a blue jersey.”
Murphy recently made his first competitive appearance in more than a year when he played during the Gers’ 5-0 win against Hamilton.
The Rangers man is now determined to work hard and to become a key player for Gerrard’s side.
The 30-year-old came on during the game as a second-half replacement for Steven Davis and received a positive reception from the Gers supporters.
He is certainly not yet near full match fitness but can use the international break to his advantage and improve his fitness levels.
The two-times capped Scotland international still has another four years of good football left in him.
As an experienced player who donned the jersey of Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League, he has the potential to become a key player for Gerrard’s Rangers side as long as he works hard in training and maintains focus.
Murphy arrived at Rangers in 2018, initially on loan from Brighton after the Seagulls deemed him surplus to requirements. He has since gone on to represent the club 18 times in the Scottish top-flight and scored four goals.
Rangers have a good chance this season to finally usurp Celtic as the kings of Scottish football.
The experience and expertise of Murphy could be a vital cog for the Gers as they look to win the Scottish league title for the first time in nearly a decade.
