Even if current Rangers boss Graeme Murty pulls off a footballing miracle of sorts and leads the Light Blues to an unlikely Scottish Cup triumph, the Gers board should still look to appoint a new man in the summer.
Murty just hasn’t had good enough results since being appointed as Gers boss for the second time in October. His team lacks consistency, as some excellent results like the three wins over Aberdeen and draw against Celtic, have been matched by home defeats to the likes of Hamilton, St Johnstone and Kilmarnock.
The Gers boss was fortunate to be able to bring in, in conjunction with director of football Mark Allen, a raft of signings in January, most of which looked good on paper at the very least.
But it has all went sour in recent weeks, as a crippling loss to a ten-man Celtic side at Ibrox, followed by dropped points to Kilmarnock and Motherwell now has the Gers in a battle for second place in the league table.
It would be unthinkable for Gers fans to consider that their team could finish fourth in the Premiership, but unless results improve that could happen, as they sit only one point ahead of Hibernian in the league table.
That isn’t anything like good enough for a big club like Rangers, and even if Murty manages to defeat Celtic and Aberdeen or Motherwell in the Scottish Cup, he hasn’t produced enough to be kept on for next season.
