Pundit suggests 'biggest problem' at Rangers as John Lundstram footage emerges on Twitter

Frank McAvennie has told Giovanni van Bronckhorst to stop changing the system at Rangers.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Celtic striker said the “biggest problem” at the Gers is that players struggle to use their initiative and rely too heavily on the system set by the manager.

Van Bronckhrost’s side dropped more points on Saturday (12 November), after a second half penalty helped them secure a 1-1 draw with St Mirren.

The draw followed a narrow 1-0 victory over Hearts during the week (9 November) and a 2-1 defeat to St Johnstone last weekend (6 November).

As shared by journalist Mark Hendry (6 November), John Lundstram can be seen giving up on the ball which ultimately led to St Johnstone’s first goal last weekend.

When asked if the players aren’t playing for Van Bronckhorst anymore, McAvennie told Football Insider:

I think he keeps changing the system” he told Football Insider.

The biggest problem I have got is that the structure and the system is everything to the players. When I used to play, if we were getting overrun in midfield, someone would just drop in to compensate.

We did not have to wait for somebody to tell us. Players do not do anything now without the manager telling them. Use some common sense and just go and help players out.

They have got to get the crowd behind them. They do not become a bad team overnight.

“If they do not want to play for the manager then fine, but when they get on the pitch they are playing for themselves and the fans, they are not playing for the manager.

If they do not like the manager it does not matter, you are there for your friends, family, the fans, they should not be walking about the pitch.
