Norwich City defender Ian Murray appears resigned to leaving Carrow Road in the near future.

Murray has played 11 times for the Canaries this season after leaving Rangers on a free transfer in August.

But he has not appeared in a yellow shirt since the woeful 3-0 defeat at Plymouth on November 10 and has admitted that he would be tempted by a return to Scotland.

“It's been a bit frustrating because I haven't played since Glenn Roeder came in,” said the 26-year-old midfielder.

“I played in every game under Peter Grant and Jim Duffy but now it looks like the new manager doesn't fancy me.

“I have read that Falkirk and Hibs are interested in me but the ball is in Norwich's court.”

Murray has been capped six times by Scotland and is enjoying life at Norwich but wants to be playing on a regular basis.

“I like it at Norwich and we have a great bunch of lads, but I just need games, although I would consider coming back to Scotland.

“That was one of the reasons I left Rangers and now I have found myself in the same position down here,” explained the versatile Murray, who is on a one-year deal with the Canaries.

“I am over my fitness problems and I have played a lot of games since then and even last week we had a fitness test and I finished second.

“Hopefully things will be resolved one way or the other, as I am out of contract at the end of the season so my agent can't speak to other clubs until the New Year.”
