Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has slammed the club as their search for a new manager continues, and has said it must be “sorted quickly”.

The club have been looking for a new boss since Pedro Caixinha was sacked on October 26 and Ferguson has accused the club of “lacking class” as the search enters a fifth week.

Under-20s coach Graeme Murty is in caretaker charge and has won two of his three matches so far.

However, Ferguson has urged the club to find the right man quickly and insists that there are obvious choices on their doorstep.

“They’re lacking class — the full club. That’s not the Rangers I know,” Ferguson told PLZ Soccer.

“Somebody come out and face the music — let the fans know what’s going on, like what the finances are all about. But the main thing just now is that the fans are wanting to know who they’ve got in their minds to be the next Rangers manager.

“Because I’ll tell you what, it needs to be the right guy. There are one or two that are right on our doorstep — a Derek McInnes or a Tommy Wright. Or even Alex McLeish, an old manager.”

Ferguson wants to see the club appoint a new manager now, so that the new boss can make an impact in the January transfer window.

“Let Graeme Murty go back to his Under-20s, because we’ve a transfer window coming up and we need to get it sorted quickly.”

Former boss McLeish and Aberdeen manager McInnes remain the betting favourites to become the club’s next permanent manager.

Interim boss Murty is preparing for his fourth game of his second spell in temporary charge, he also took over as caretaker boss before Caixinha was appointed in March.

Rangers travel to Dundee in Scottish Premiership action on Friday evening and are currently fourth in the table after Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat to Hamilton.

Murty could have defenders Bruno Alves and Lee Hodson available again after injury problems.
