Alan Stubbs gives Rangers advice that fans will not want to hear
Ex-Celtic defender Alan Stubbs has said that Rangers can stop the Hoops from winning ten in a row, but must spend the next two years building a squad that can do it.
With the Bhoys just one win away from securing their seventh league title, the former Everton player pointed to his own experience when the Hoops put everything into stopping Rangers from completing their own ten-in-a-row back in 1998.
It was a feat which they accomplished but if the Gers were to wait another two years before putting everything into a title challenge, it would not go down well with the Light Blues faithful.
With football as knee-jerk as it is these days, the game is short on patience and high on instant success which means that whoever is in charge of matters at Ibrox next season will have those pressures heaped upon them.
This season has encapsulated how quickly form can derail and how quickly a great player can be thrown on the scrapheap the next.

If the club does not move forward with ambition this coming transfer window and results do not immediately go the way of the manager – whoever that may be – they will quickly be shown the exit door and so the turmoil will continue.
Action is needed now, not in two years.
