Former Celtic manager Martin O’Neill thinks that the current Rangers side are the worst he has ever seen play at Ibrox.
The Northern Irishman made the remarks in the aftermath of the Hoops’ comfortable 5-0 win over the Gers on Sunday, which saw the Bhoys clinch their seventh consecutive league title.
The Bhoys could have scored even more goals during the game, with only Gers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick keeping the scoreline to what can be considered respectable for the Ibrox outfit on a day they were demolished by Brendan Rodgers’ men.
“It’s unquestionably the worst side that has ever, ever played for Rangers” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“They are so, so bad. They are worse than bad, they are dreadful!”
It has certainly changed days from when O’Neill managed the Hoops, as both sides were involved in some titanic battles for the league title, which for the most part saw the Hoops prevail.
Football Insider verdict
Hoops fan will love to hear these comments from O’Neill, who certainly pulled no punches in his description of the Ibrox side. It has to be said that he is correct for the most part though, as the Gers were truly abysmal in the match which saw the Bhoys clinch the league title. It looks like whoever comes in to be the next boss at Rangers- Steven Gerrard, or some other name – will need a massive budget to compete with the Hoops next season, and even then it is unlikely that Brendan Rodgers will be resting on his laurels. He will want the Bhoys to push on even further next season, not only on the domestic front but also in Europe.
