Rangers star Ryan Jack admitted that the club’s latest humiliation is “embarrassing” for the players as they struggled to keep up their horrendous record of failing to win three games in a row since December 2016.
The Ibrox giants lost at home to Hamilton for the first time in 31 years after goals from David Templeton and Darren Lyon left the Gers stunned.
Graeme Murty’s side dominated the first-half and spurned a host of good chances only to be hit by two goals against the run of play.
Jack admits the players are “hurt” by the latest setback after two wins from their previous two games.
“Obviously we’re hurt and disappointed, there’s no other way to put it,” Jack told RangersTV in a video shared by the club’s official Twitter account.
“It’s embarrassing for us because we go and get two wins in a row and get a home game and a chance to get three points and get closer to teams in front of us and we don’t take it.”

The result leaves Rangers nine points behind leaders Celtic in the Scottish Premiership although second-placed Aberdeen also lost on Saturday leaving Gers fans one small positive from the weekend’s results.
Next up for the Light Blues is a trip to Dens Park to take on Neil McCann’s Dundee on Friday night in a must-win game for the 54-times Scottish champions.
A win over the Dark Blues would put Rangers second in the table – albeit likely only temporarily – before Aberdeen face Kilmarnock at Rugby Park next Sunday.
