Aberdeen legend Willie Miller has taken a huge swipe at Rangers’ board as the search for a replacement for Pedro Caixinha is set to enter it’s sixth week.

The Ibrox giants sacked Caixinha on 26 October but appear to be no closer to hiring the 47-year-old’s successor.

A host of managers have been linked with the vacant manager’s job at Ibrox with Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes and, Miller’s former defensive partner at Pittodrie, Alex McLeish the frontrunners.

Miller believes the time taken by the Gers is reflecting poorly on them and claims the 54-time Scottish champions should overhaul their entire set-up.

“It is now a month since Pedro Caixinha was axed and still Rangers do not have a new manager,” Miller said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“It is incredibly inefficient of Rangers and they really need to look at their set-up.

“For a club of their size to take this long with no clarity in sight is almost amateurish.

“It makes Rangers look like they are not professional enough to come up with a name that is going to take them forward.”

Miller spent virtually his entire club career with Aberdeen – playing a record 560 league games for the Dons over 17 years – before taking the managerial reins after hanging up his boots.

The former defender lifted three Scottish titles, four Scottish Cups, three Scottish League Cups, a European Cup Winners’ Cup and a European Super Cup under a young Sir Alex Ferguson as the Dons broke up Rangers and Celtic’s long-standing domination of Scottish football.

Graeme Murty has been put in temporary charge of the Gers since Caixinha’s sacking and is expected to remain in the dugout for Rangers’ next two games – home and away fixtures with Aberdeen.

The Gers currently trail Aberdeen by six points in the Scottish Premiership ahead of the back-to-back clashes with Derek McInnes’ side and will be desperate to pick up full points and draw back level with the Dons.
