Former Dundee boss and player Simon Stainrod has slammed the current Rangers team and has even suggested the side of 1992 would beat the current crop with a 10 goal handicap.

The Gers side are struggling in the Premiership without a manager and without a league win from their last three matches with two defeats and a draw.

It has left the famous Scottish side in third place in the table with a massive 30 points between them and fierce rivals Celtic.

Rangers’ 2-1 defeat against Dundee on Sunday marked the first time the Dees had beat the Glasgow giants at home since 1992.

Now, Stainrod, who played against Rangers 25 years ago has shared that the side back then would destroy the current Gers team.

“I got a text on Sunday night from a Dundee director, Steve Martin, telling me about the result,” told Stainrod to the Sun.

“I told him the difference between the Rangers team then and the team today is that the team we played in 1992 could give the current team ten goals of a start and still beat them.

“Remember that team we played had international players in nearly every position — and good international players at that.

“There’s certainly nothing like that at Rangers now.”

Rangers fans are currently desperate for some good news both on and off the pitch after the departure of Mark Warburton earlier in the month.

It is fair to say that their first season back in the Scottish top flight since 2012 has not gone as planned, but with bottom of the league Inverness coming up next on Friday their may be start to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
