Former Rangers striker Steven Thompson has claimed that the Rangers board ‘don’t know’ who is going to be the next permanent Rangers manager.

The Gers have had youth coach Graeme Murty in caretaker charge since the sacking of Perdo Caixinha in October.

The decision seemed to work at first, as Rangers defeated Hearts and Partick Thistle.

The wheels seems to have come off since though, as Rangers have lost their last two league games to Hamilton and Dundee.

Speaking to BBC Scotland as reported by The Scottish Sun, Thompson has blasted the Rangers board.

He said: “I thought it would be Derek McInnes and I thought maybe Alex McLeish because he is the next sort of obvious option.

“I don’t think anybody knows and I think not even the Rangers board know.”

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has reportedly been the odds-on favourite since the departure of Caixinha, but there has been no contact between Rangers and Aberdeen as yet.

Ironically, Rangers and Aberdeen play each other twice this week in what could prove to be a season-defining double header.

Tomorrow night the teams play at Ibrox before the return match at Pittodrie on Sunday.

Rangers are currently six points behind the Dons in the Scottish Premiership table
