Outspoken pundit and former striker Chris Sutton has blamed former boss Mark Warburton and ex-chief Frank McParland alongside chairman Dave King for Rangers’ wretched season.
The Gers are in their first season back in the Scottish top-flight after their demotion in 2012 and after pre-season hopes of challenging Celtic once again the team have ultimately come up short.
Now, a lot of the blame for the club’s disappointing campaign has been aimed at the poor recruitment made in the summer, which saw Warburton bring in a total of 11 senior players.
Many felt that Warburton was aiming too low with players joining from the English football leagues, while others felt as though McParland didn’t identify good enough players.
Additionally, Sutton and fans feel that King didn’t provide Warburton with the funds needed to challenge Celtic once again and the BT Sport pundit launched an attack on the trio via his personal Twitter account on Saturday evening.

Sutton certainly hasn’t been shy of airing his opinions on Rangers after their humiliating 5-1 defeat against Celtic at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, leaving them in third place and 36 points behind their Glasgow rivals.
They will travel to sixth placed Partick Thistle next on Sunday and with four matches left they can still catch Aberdeen in second, who sit nine points ahead.
