Rangers will come away from Sunday’s 4-0 Scottish Cup humiliation at the hands of bitter rivals Celtic and try to get back to winning ways when they welcome Hearts to Govan next weekend – but the Hampden humiliation needs to be a watershed moment for the Gers and spark massive change at Ibrox.
From boardroom to bootroom the Gers are a mess and something needs to change if the Light Blues are going to have a serious chance at challenging Celtic for the title next season.
Chairman Dave King and the rest of the board are going to have to dig deep and bring in a quality manager with a proven track-record and cough up to bring in the much-needed improvements to the playing squad.
The board could have got lucky after Graeme Murty almost managed to lead the Light Blues into a title challenge, before losing at Ibrox last month and then watching their form go into a nosedive.
Seven years have passed since the Gers last lifted the league title – or a major trophy for that matter – and the way things are going just now, it would not be a surprise if it was a further seven before the Ibrox giants can get close.
Unless, of course, the board finally stop tyre-kicking and do what needs to be done to finally close the gap on Celtic.
