Kenny McDowall announces retirement from Rangers

Kenny McDowall announced his intention to resign and leave his managerial position at Rangers on January of the ongoing year but the Scottish club replied by stating that the coach has to remain in charge of the squad for 12 more months.

Recently, there have been a number of things going on around Rangers as there are power struggles within the internal management of the club, fans have displayed disciplinary problems after singing songs which were labeled as inappropriate during the Scottish Championship League match between Rangers and Raith Rovers.

The goal-keeper of Rangers, Steve Simonsen has been banned on a number of occasions after it was discovered that he was caught gambling on football and breaching rules.

All of these are the things that have affected the caretaker manager Kenny McDowall up to the point where he has stated it’s not easy being the manager and McDowall would prefer to see the former coach Ally McCoist back in the Scottish club.

"I'm trying to enjoy it but there's a lot to take on board. What I have got to try and do is get the team winning football matches. When I'm doing that, I'm enjoying it. It's not easy, I wouldn't sit here and lie to you, but we have got to do the best we can do. We need to get promotion this year and get Rangers back into the top league."

‘’I would much rather Ally was sitting here and not me, to be honest with you. But circumstances have dictated that I'm sitting here talking to you, so I just have to get on with it and do the best I can do for the club." Kenny McDowall said during a recent interview.

To make matters even worse, Rangers have been suffering from successive losses after having been defeated by: Celtic, Raith Rovers and Hibernian. This is the 1st time in 15 years that the Scottish side has sustained so many consecutive defeats.
