Kris Boyd has launched a blistering attack on Rangers, saying they’re a group of individuals not a team, and claims they need to gel and score more goals if they want to compete with rivals Celtic next season.
The Gers are currently a staggering 37 points behind Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic with six games remaining in the Premiership.
Speaking on Sky Sports 2’s live coverage of Ranger’s 3-0 win over Aberdeen on Sunday, former Gers striker Boyd claimed that Pedro Caixinha’s side is made up of individuals and challenged them to score more goals.
“They’re a lot of individuals. You put them together as a team, they struggle. They’ll go 2 or 3 games and play well, but that is all they can manage at the moment,” Boyd said.
“Something does need to change to match Celtic, but they’ve not scored enough goals this season; plain and simple. They don’t create much, and when they do get the chances, they aren’t clinical.”
Kenny Miller finally made the breakthrough yesterday in the 79th minute against the run of play, as he hammered a loose ball into the roof of the net following a good save from Joe Lewis.
Miller doubled his tally just two minutes later, as he slotted the ball past Lewis when put through one-on-one to score his eighth league goal for the Gers.
Substitute Joe Dodoo also got in on the act, as he cut inside from the left flank to fire home a low shot into Lewis’ near post and earn a 3-0 win at Pittodrie.
Rangers are next in action against Partick Thistle on Saturday, as they look to close the gap on Aberdeen to just six points.
