“Rangers are so, so bad. They are worse than bad, they are dreadful,” Martin O’Neill

MARTIN O’NEILL watched a pathetic Rangers side on Sunday being skelped 5-0 at Celtic Park and reckoned he was watching the worst Rangers side in their history.

They have had a few bad ones since they were founded in 2012 but we get Martin’s point. The Ireland manager also considered the task that Steven Gerrard would be letting himself in for if he decided to take over from the battered and bruised caretaker boss as the latest youth coach to become their gaffer.

“He hasn’t got a clue what he’s letting himself in for,” Martin observed.

“He has been born and bred in Liverpool, so he must have an idea. But I hope he does. It would be nice to see him.

“I think he would be terrific for Rangers because unquestionably it’s the worst side that has ever played for Rangers.”

I was sitting outside the Stirling Albion ground last night and marvelled at the thought that Ally McCoist brought his Rangers side here to play a 3rd Division match in 2012-13 season and lost 1-0.

Even in the Third Division they could not achieve the Invincible status in their league campaign was one thought I had. The other was, putting a guy in charge of a team just because he was a great player, is a risky business. John Greig, at the old Rangers and McCoist at founding father Charles Green’s club, prove the point surely?

The former Celtic boss was scathing of the Rangers performance on Sunday.

“They are so, so bad. They are worse than bad, they are dreadful,” O’Neill said.

“The only way is up for him.”
