Rangers star Kenny Miller believes the Ibrox side let themselves down after losing at home to Hamilton in the league for the first time since 1926.
Second-half goals from former Ibrox pair David Templeton and Darren Lyon secured a shock three points for Martin Canning’s side as the Gers again failed to pick up three consecutive wins.
Rangers could have been out of sight by half-time but were wasteful in front of goal before Accies punished their hosts with two goals.
Miller believes the club’s search for a new manager didn’t have any affect on the Rangers squad as he absolved interim manager Graeme Murty of blame for the result.
“To be honest, whether there’s a new manager in place for this game or not, it’s not affected the lads whatsoever,” Miller said, as quoted by the Belfast Telegraph.
“We had a good week in training and we knew, if we performed well, we would win the game.
“Murts has come in and done a great job, like he did the last time, and the lads respond to what he wants done.
“Whether he is second favourite, favourite, 10th favourite doesn’t really matter.
“We have let ourselves down with the result.”
The result leaves the Gers in fourth in the Scottish Premiership and the only silver-lining for the Light Blues is that both Aberdeen and Hibernian also lost meaning the Ibrox giants didn’t lose any ground.
Next up for the Gers is a trip to Dens Park to take on Neil McCann’s Dundee on Friday night before a double-header with Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen.
The Gers are still searching for a new manager after sacking Pedro Caixinha on October 26th.
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is among the favourites to replace the Portuguese in the Ibrox hotseat.
