'Pathetic', 'Sack the board' - Rangers fans rage over confirmed development in manager hunt

Rangers released a statement on their club website on Thursday confirming details surrounding Derek McInnes’ decision to stay with Aberdeen – and fans on Twitter have been left raging at the Ibrox giants over it.

The Aberdeen boss confirmed that he intended to stay at Pittordrie after the Gers requested permission to speak with him over becoming the club’s new boss earlier this week.

The board statement – likely penned by PR chief Jim Traynor – has turned what was already a PR mess for the club into a complete shambles with criticism coming from all angles over the development in what has been a farcical manager search.

The statement from the club was released late on Thursday night and, despite the questionable timing of it, the tone taken has left fans furious with the way the search for Pedro Caixinha’s replacement has been handled by the Gers – with many calling for a complete regime change at board level.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Interim manager Graeme Murty will now continue in charge until the end of the year after being handed the reins in the wake of Caixinha’s sacking.

Since taking over the first-team in October, Murty has led the Gers to four wins from his six games in charge and could become the first Rangers manager to win three consecutive games in almost a year with a win over Ross County on Saturday afternoon.
