Itís not what you said. You said we arenít committed to ďbuying him at the end of the seasonĒ. In a way thatís true - we wonít be buying him at the end of the season. We have already signed him for next season. Rangers donít want him playing against them this season, hence the loan for the first year. It is a similar situation to McCrory at Aberdeen.
It is exactly what I said.. we arenít buying him as he wonít be owned by anyone. Itís a deal that suited both parties due to is saving money on it, the response was to someone saying it was Gerrard doing it in some dodgy way.
He reminds me a bit of Michael O'Neill who was brilliant for Hibs. Getting Murphy has been under-rated bit of business.
I really wasnít a fan of his signing initially.
Possibly as wrong as Iíve been about something - heís superb.
It was the ď31 year old winger with a bad injury in the not too distant pastĒ bit I was most concerned about, surely his pace will diminish whilst heís with us? Possibly, but heís not exactly the explosive pace type, so even if he does lose a bit of pace he should still have plenty left in order to be able to hurt teams.
