Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has launched a stinging attack on the club’s board, savaging them for the lack of “leadership” and “transparency” since taking charge of the club.
Rangers have been without a manager since October 26th with the club silent on the matter other than comments from an unnamed spokesperson through fans’ site The Rangers Observer which has close links with Ibrox PR chief James Traynor.
The Light Blues take on Dundee on Friday night before back-to-back clashes with Aberdeen which could make or break the Gers’ season and Ferguson believes it’s time the Ibrox board started delivering on some of the promises that saw them swept to power almost three years ago.
“More than two years on, there comes a point when you have to hold them to account and ask a simple question: ‘Now you’ve saved the club, can you actually run it?’” Ferguson wrote in his column for the Daily Record.
“It’s been four weeks since they sacked the previous manager and the silence from the boardroom has been deafening.
“As a fan I want to know, where is the leadership? Where is the transparency they promised?
“Like the rest of the support, I’ve been left completely in the dark and it’s simply not good enough to be told by some faceless spokesman that they’ve got everything under control.”
Ferguson spent two spells at Ibrox as a player – winning a total of 15 trophies with the Gers – and was recently interviewed by Pedro Caixinha over a role on the club’s coaching staff.
Interim manager Graeme Murty will again take the reins when the Gers face Dundee – his fourth game since Pedro Caixinha’s sacking – and Rangers fans are quickly becoming frustrated with the perceived tyre-kicking being done the by the board.
The Gers are currently fourth in the Scottish Premiership and trail leaders Celtic by nine points.
A win over Dundee would see the Gers draw level with Aberdeen before the Dons play on Sunday and could heap the pressure on Derek McInnes’ side before the two sides clash.
