Rotten to the core- Kris Boyd demands Ibrox clear out

Kris Boyd wants the Ibrox clear out to extend beyond Micky Beale and his backroom staff.

Last Sunday the axe fell on the rookie boss as he agreed terms on the three years remaining on his contract, leaving behind a car crash of a squad for his successor.

Graham Potter and Frank Lampard have already ruled themselves out of contention with the messages from Kevin Muscat being that he’ll be sticking with Yokohama F Marinos until their season ends at the start of January.

With another SPFL campaign on the brink of collapse Boyd knows that he will almost certainly be looking on at a Celtic title party in the spring time as he takes the trolling from Chris Sutton.

It is a miserable prospect for the former Scotland striker who celebrated with the rest of the bears as Beale delivered the Dead Rubber Trophy and the Transfer Window Cup.

Those highs seems like a distant memory, addressing the immediate future Boyd told Sun readers:

EXACTLY 500 days separated Rangers’ Europa League final defeat and Michael Beale’s last game as Ibrox boss.

Back in May 2022, this was a club and a team going places, despite their penalty shoot-out defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Just 16 months later, it appears something is rotten at the core of this Rangers squad.

Beale’s time was up. Sacking him after last week’s defeat to Aberdeen was the right call.

But after the humiliating loss to Aris Limassol on Thursday, it’s clear he was only part of the problem.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for Rangers, it did.

In the list of European embarrassments for Scottish clubs, that result in Cyprus easily rockets into the top five.

Rangers chairman John Bennett said the Ibrox board would take “as long as it takes” before replacing Beale.

They don’t have that time. They need a new manager in place by next Monday to prepare for the league restarting.

If I was Steven Davis as interim boss, I would want out of this mess as soon as possible.

Tomorrow in Paisley Boyd will be watching the usual suspects going through the motions against St Mirren knowing that the pressure is on the Blue Room to bring in a new manager and fund a clear out.
