TOMMY WRIGHT has hit back at Graeme Murty following the Rangers manager’s comments after St Johnstone’s 4-1 loss on Tuesday.

An injury to on-loan winger Jamie Murphy appeared to upset the Ibrox caretaker boss.

Wright said: “I was surprised to read quotes about Rangers being angry with our tackling.

“If anything, we should have complaints, especially for the Morelos challenge on Anderson.

“Rangers gave away more fouls than we did, but there wasn’t one bad foul in the game. If anything, I’d have wanted my players to have made more tackles.

“Murray Davidson took a knock and had to come off. He got stood on by Jamie Murphy after a challenge.

“I don’t think it was anything other than accidental, but his foot landed on Murray’s knee and he took a sore one. Thankfully he’ll be fine.

“It’s unfortunate when players pick up knocks, but these things happen.

“We haven’t been moaning about it.”
