Steven Thompson sees endless problems at Rangers

Former Rangers frontman Steven Thompson sees 'endless problems' at the Ibrox Stadium, after his former club suffered back-to-back defeat in the Scottish Premiership. The Glasgow-based club lost 2-0 at home Hamilton Academical last weekend, and this has been followed with a 2-1 defeat at Dundee on Friday night. Rangers created several goal-scoring opportunities prior to half-time, but they were outsmarted by a Mark O'Hara brace on either side of Josh Windass' opener. Following the game, Thompson was critical about the Rangers' performance as they suffered successive defeats against clubs in the bottom-six of the table.

The 39-year-old also suggested that the Rangers are lacking direction going forward, and their problems seem endless, he said: "I can't remember them losing back-to-back games against bottom-six teams before. Yes, they created opportunities, yes, they should have taken them, but they didn't."

"Rangers lack direction, they lack quality, and the support are lacking belief just now. We don't know if they lack finance, but lack is a great word for Rangers right now. The second half was a different story. Rangers just lacked belief and penetration and quality in the final third, and Dundee smelt it. You have to give Dundee massive credit but for Rangers, there are endless problems."

Graeme Murty has remained in interim charge at Ibrox since Pedro Caixinha's dismissal over a month ago, and they have recently received a blow in the pursuit of Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes, who has insisted that his future lies at the Pittodrie Stadium.

Rangers made smart business during the summer as they brought in valuable recruits including Portugal international Bruno Alves, but things have not gone to plan since as they fall further behind Celtic with every league game. Rangers are presently nine points adrift of the table-toppers in fourth spot, and they are likely to fall further behind with Brendan Rodgers' side still having two games in hand.
