He was told in December he would remain in charge until the end of the season.Rangers are second in the Premiership with four games remaining.However, this month's 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat by Celtic led to protests at Sunday's home league win over Hearts.It was also followed by the suspension of captain Lee Wallace and veteran striker Kenny Miller following an angry post-match dressing-room exchange with Murty.The Ibrox side travel to Celtic Park on Sunday, when a victory for Brendan Rodgers' side in the Glasgow derby will secure a seventh consecutive title.
