'They should be embarrassed' - Charlie Nicholas delivers brutal verdict on Rangers, blasts senior man
By Will Butcher
Charlie Nicholas has delivered a scathing attack on Rangers after the club suffered a loss to Scottish Premiership rivals Aberdeen on Wednesday night.
The Gers lost 2-1 at Ibrox to Derek McInnes’ side as goals from Graeme Shinnie and Ryan Christie proved too much for Pedro Caixinha’s Gers against the Dons.
Former Celtic ace Nicholas believes Rangers are devoid of any top-class talent, and criticised Portuguese boss for his outspoken nature since taking over from Mark Warburton in March.
“They do not have any top class players at all,” Nicholas told Sky Sports News’ Premier League Daily Show on Thursday (10am).
“They have a manager that thinks he owns the country and tells the press his tactics. They are in a real state.

“He needs to tell his players the tactics and make them better. They are a million miles away from finishing second place. And that is why they should be embarrassed.”
With one Scottish Premiership fixture left, Rangers will finish the season in third place and are a massive 36 points behind Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic who have a game in hand over the Gers.
Goals from Shinnie and Christie either side of half-time secured three points for second-placed Aberdeen, with Martyn Waghorn’s goal not enough to earn something from the game.
Rodgers has surpassed expectation since taking over at rivals Celtic in the summer, and is on course to complete a superb treble after securing the Scottish League Cup and League title.
