Roger Hannah, chief sportswriter of the Scottish Sun, has criticised the amount of time it has taken Rangers to appoint a new manager.
The journalist revealed his opinion in a column on the Scottish Sun’s website, commenting that the two months it has taken to replace Pedro Caixinha is far too long.
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has long been thought of as the favourite to become the next Rangers manager but there has been no contact between Rangers and Aberdeen.
Hannah has advised Rangers to move onto new candidates if McInnes isn’t interested in the job.
He said: “If McInnes is staying put — and who could blame him? — Gers must find an alternative target now. Too much time has already been wasted.
“The players need a firm hand because they have already reacted to uncertainty and anxiety by downing tools.
“Why haven’t they appointed a new manager? Gers are in the grip of a full-blown crisis… my advice is to get the right man in before it’s too late.”
Rangers face Aberdeen tonight at Ibrox Park in what is the first of two games between the clubs in four days.
Graeme Murty will continue in his role of caretaker boss for the games, a role he has had since taking over from the sacked Pedro Caixinha.
