'Not a magic wand' – Former Rangers ace delivers worrying verdict on Ibrox future
Former Rangers ace Lee McCulloch has said that it’s not as simple as waving a magic wand over Ibrox to put an end to the Light Blues problems on and off the pitch.
He said investment is the only answer to the problem but added that he has no idea how long it will take.
The now-former manager of Kilmarnock has had his say on the events post-Sunday and the fall-out in the aftermath of the Celtic 4-0 drubbing.
The futures of not only Graeme Murty have been hauled into the spotlight but Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace too, after the two were involved in a reported bust-up questioning the Gers boss. which has resulted in their suspension.
And speaking in the Scottish Sun, McCulloch gave his opinion on what was needed to solve the club’s issues: “It is not a magic wand. There needs to be some players going, some fresh ones brought in and that costs money so there needs to be investment in the team.
“It can be done. You have to believe it can be done.

“How long that will take I don’t know.”
Football Insider verdict:
The performance on Sunday was a surprise to everyone, not least the Gers faithful but seems to be a hangover from the previous meeting between the two. Rangers, some might say were unlucky to not have got anything from the last match and it would seem that that was still in the minds of more than a few players at Hampden. While Rangers are in need of acquisitions this summer, there’s also a requirement to take stock of the progression that has been made at Ibrox after the years away from the Premiership. They are a club which has had to start all over again so it will take time and patience to get back to the highs of the past. But the Scottish top-flight is much weaker financially than it was when they were thrown down the divisions, and whether the money will ever get back to where it was in the future is unknown.
In other Rangers news, Murty may throw 20-year-old in deep end as last roll of dice to rescue Gers career.
