    English manager outlines transfer designs on ‘game-changing’ Rangers player

    Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough has heaped praise on on-loan Rangers winger Jamie Murphy. 

    The 30-year-old completed a move to the English League One side during the January transfer window, and has been in eye-catching form south of the border

    Since his switch he has hit three goals in five matches and registered an assist too.

    Speaking to the Totally Football League Show, Clough said: “He’s been brilliant.

    “When we heard that we might have a small chance of bringing him in, we just did everything we could to get him down here. I think he’s got three in five now or something.

    “He’s a game-changing player. We’re extremely lucky to have him in our squad in League One because he’s at least a Championship player and he’s proved that.

    “But coming back from injury, he just wanted to come somewhere that he knew that he knew, he knew the people and he was guaranteed to play.

    “He’s back enjoying his football again and scoring goals. That’s brilliant, and will set him up for next season wherever he goes.

    “We would love to [keep him next season], but he’s got a year left at Rangers. In this sort of form I’m sure they’ll be keeping an eye on him and think he can do a job for them.

    “If not, I would think a Championship club [will come in for him] at the very least.”

    How good is this for Rangers?
    This is exactly the kind of boost that the Gers will have wanted for their player when they sent him out on loan.
    There’s no doubting that Murphy has talent, and he’s illustrating that perfectly in England, but he was never going to get the chance to prove that in the second half of the campaign.
    A loan exit felt like the most sensible option for both the player and the club, but nobody could have foreseen just how quickly he would hit the ground running.
    So far he has averaged 6.3 successful dribbles and 11.17 offensive duels won, as per Wyscout.
    The hope will be that he can continue that form into the rest of the season and bring it back to Ibrox with him.
