Rangers don’t have their troubles to seek at the moment and yet one win, against Celtic, would have seen fans sent home happy and confident that Michael Beale was the right man in charge.

A promise was made by the manager of fast, attacking football when he first arrived and yet he has consistently failed, particularly in big games.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, former Rangers skipper Craig Moore is equally as unimpressed with Michael Beale and has pinpointed another area where the manager leaves himself wide open to criticism.

Moore hits mark in Rangers fans’ concerns over Michael Beale

The pursuit for a sporting director has gone quiet, however, if the big Aussie is a contender, Michael Beale’s future as Rangers manager could be short lived.

When asked about the Light Blues line up and the inclusion of Kemar Roofe with money spent on four new forwards, he said:

“I think what the supporters want to see is when you sign nine new players and talk about improving the starting XI and only three start this particular match.

“There’s concerns in terms of the mixed messaging.”

Moore is right.

It’s an issue that has plagued Beale since he was first appointed.

One minute, a Michael Beale team will always have room for Glen Kamara, the next minute, he’s lucky to be sitting on the bench.

In January, he identified centre-half as being a position he wanted to address, and yet, in the two windows since, only Leon Balogun has been added.

The most pointless signing of the summer with Leon King now dropping back to fifth choice.

Whether it is style of play or talking about transfers, Michael Beale needs to learn that honesty isn’t always the best policy.
