Chris Sutton issues Rangers plea, destroys board after developments
Chris Sutton has pleaded with Rangers to get a new manager in as soon as possible after a series of developments this week that saw them miss out on top target Derek McInnes.
The Light Blues made an approach for the Aberdeen manager on Tuesday before he made the decision to snub a potential return to Ibrox.
Rangers then decided to release a statement which explains how it would have been a “risk” to have appointed a manager like McInnes if he had doubts about the role.
The Gers have spent over six weeks on the hunt for a replacement to Pedro Caixinha who was sacked in late October and now, former Celtic striker Sutton has blasted the Ibrox board for not bringing someone in as soon as possible.
“I would be furious if I was a Rangers fan,” said Sutton, as shown on BT Sport Football’s official Twitter account on Friday.
“It’s a great club, a great institution and the board have made a mess of it. They are leaderless, they are ruddlerless.

“It’s like the People’s Front of Judea. Meetings about meetings. Get on with it and get a manager in.”
Hibernian manager and former Celtic boss Neil Lennon was also in the studio on Friday night and was in stitches as Sutton laid into the Rangers board.
"I would be furious if I were a Rangers fan…"

After facing Ross County on Saturday, the Gers will face Lennon’s Hibernian at Easter Road on Wednesday night as they look to made amends for losing to the Edinburgh side at Ibrox earlier this season.
Graeme Murty is in caretaker charge still and is expected to be until the end of 2017.
