Interim Rangers manager Graeme Murty blasted his players after the Gers’ surprise 2-1 defeat at Dundee on Friday night and insists recent results are “not acceptable.”
The Ibrox side fell to their second defeat in six days as two goals from Mark O’Hara stunned the Gers at Dens Park leaving Rangers’ season hinging by a thread before they face Aberdeen in back-to-back clashes next week.
Josh Windass scored Rangers’ goal in his only notable contribution to the match despite playing the full 90 minutes.
Murty was furious at his side’s defending as they gave away two cheap goals to Neil McCann’s side before claiming that the Ibrox giants need to appoint a new manager sooner rather than later.
“We didn’t play well enough to win the game”, Murty said on BT Sport’s post-match coverage on Friday night.
“Two really, really poor goals again. We can’t defend that way.
“It’s not the ideal situation but we have to deal with the situation as it is.
“The last two results are not acceptable for this football club.
“The manager situation has got to be done right and the right person needs to come in.”
The result means second-place Aberdeen can extend their lead over the Ibrox side to six points before the sides meet on Wednesday at Ibrox before clashing again at Pittodrie on Sunday.
Murty has been in charge of the Ibrox side since being handed the reins in the wake of Pedro Caixinha’s sacking last month.
Rangers fans are desperate for their club to appoint a new permanent manager and the result against Dundee is only going to increase calls for the board to hurry up their search for a new boss.
