Michael Beale has two weeks to save his Rangers job and, potentially, his chances of bringing the Scottish Premiership title back to Ibrox.

The Gers boss is at a crossroads, down one road he can choose to be stubborn and continue on his current path or the other, which would involve ripping up his current game plan and starting again.

What Michael Beale chooses to do after the international break will dictate how his future at Rangers will pan out.

Michael Beale has two weeks to save Rangers job

Going as far back as the pre-season fixtures, Rangers have struggled to create chances and consistently coughed up cheap goals at the other end of the park.

The Old Firm was no different and a week that should have seen Champions League qualification and Rangers going top of the league has been an unmitigated disaster.

With a near fully fit squad and decent backing from the board, much of the blame lies firmly at Michael Beale’s door.

In all but two games this season the Rangers boss has had to abort whatever plan he had and scramble to put something else together to scrape a result.

This isn’t the consistency or style that we had been promised when Michael Beale first took the Rangers job.

Once we get new players.

Once everyone is fit.

Once the new players gel.

There is an element of hope that is betrayed by what is actually on display.

There has been nothing since Michael Beale rebuilt this Rangers squad that has seen cause for excitement or a belief that success is just around the corner.

The plan A isn’t working.

What path the manager takes after the winter break will have a direct correlation with how long he stays in the job.
