Former Rangers player Bob Malcolm has urged fans to get behind the team when they take on Aberdeen on Wednesday night in their next Premiership clash.

However the 37-year-old, who played for the Light Blues between 1997 and 2006, has not shied away from taking a viscous swipe at the Ibrox board, suggesting that they do not have the clubs’ best interests at heart.

Rangers have been on the search for a new manager for over five weeks and are yet to make any significant progress in replacing Pedro Caixinha.

Graeme Murty has been in caretaker charge since and got off to a good start by winning his first two games.

However the mood among the fanbase has soon turned sour after back-to-back losses against Hamilton and struggling Dundee, leaving the Ibrox faithful completely disillusioned with the decision making that is going on behind the scenes.

Malcolm, who has been retired from the game since 2011, has taken to his personal Twitter account to show his strong resentment towards the board.

“**** the board they won’t be wearing a strip tonight. Sky is always blue in my world,” he said after urging the fans to remain positive about the upcoming game against Aberdeen.

“Our job as fans is to support our team so why don’t we get right behind them tonight everything positive. Any negativity in the stands translate on to the pitch 100%. Let’s show why were the best fans in the world.”


Rangers face back-to-back fixtures against Aberdeen this week and if they win both, they can move level on points with Derek McInnes’ side in the Premiership standings.

McInnes has been linked with the Ibrox vacancy ever since Pedro Caixinha was sacked in October, however he has continually attempted to distance himself away from any speculation.
