‘Will the board do the right thing and sack him?’ ‘Lack of leadership’ ‘he needs sacked tonight’ Follow Follow demands that Beale is sacked

Anger levels are off the radar tonight as Follow Follow members demand the sacking of Micky Beale.

Three SPFL defeats in seven matches have left the rookie boss badly exposed with a 5-1 Champions League humiliation from PSV Eindhoven thrown into the mix.

Back-to-back defeats from the Dutch side and Celtic sent Beale’s credibility crashing but with no credible caretaker or obvious successor the men in the Blue Room decided to stick with their current manager with a favourable run of fixtures coming up with four out of five matches at home.

That run also carried danger, from January onwards the bears had been fed a constant diet of Good News stories to deflect attention away from another Celtic treble and Beale’s complete inability to win any meaningful fixtures.

Within a nine week stretch the Ibrox Tribute Act lost to Celtic in three competitions but the myth that an exciting new side was being built around Todd Cantwell and Nico Rakin was well underway.

Beating Celtic 3-0 in a dead runner was all the confirmation that the bears required as every summer signing was welcomed as an act of genius by the manager who was now flying solo with Ross Wilson escaping to Nottingham Forest.

Beale does have the comfort of a contract that runs until 2026 but it looks unlikely that he’ll be trusted with Thursday’s Europa League tie against ARIS Limassol.

After today’s defeat the former QPR boss made it clear that he won’t be resigning, after the way he did the dirty in his last job Beale is utterly toxic in England. His current job is his last meaningful one in management with youth team coaching his only employment prospect.

Whoever takes over is walking in on a desperate mess, inheriting a squad of serial losers led by James Tavernier bolstered by duds signed on long term contracts over the last two summers.

There won’t be any rush of clubs looking to sign Ridvan Yilmaz, Cyriel Dessers, Ben Davies, Sam Lammers or Jose Cifuentes in January.

Finding a fire fighter to take on the mess created by Beale is going to be a very difficult task, with no football experience in the Blue Room anything is possible from the decision makers that appointed Mark Warburton, Pedro Caixinha and the hapless Beale.
