Rangers 'have sold a couple of players' after Ibrox source's reveal today - pundit

Frank McAvennie has told Rangers fans it is not all “doom and gloom” despite their recent dip in form.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Celtic striker claimed the Gers are still close enough to the Hoops to challenge for the title.

The Light Blues drew 1-1 with St Mirren on Saturday (12 November) that followed a narrow 1-0 victory over Hearts and a 2-1 defeat to St Johnstone.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst‘s side are now nine points behind their Glasgow rivals amid uncertainty surrounding the manager’s future.

Sources told this site today (14 November) that the Bears are increasingly likely to sack the Dutch boss in the coming days after weekend crisis talks.

The 47-year-old’s position is hanging by a thread as his side head into the winter break.

Ibrox directors are becoming increasingly likely to accept that they have no choice but to swap out Van Bronckhorst despite the multi-million pound cost of axing the current boss and his backroom staff.

On Sunday (13 November), Football Insider revealed that QPR manager Michael Beale is currently Rangers’ top target.

But McAvennie has insisted the Gers can turn things around.

They have sold a couple of players and they have got a couple of injuries but they are still better than what they have been playing,” he told Football Insider.

They have had a couple of poor results, they have had a couple of 1-0s but that is getting over the line. It is not all doom and gloom. They are nine points behind so they are still thereabouts.
