Rangers insider responds to claims Board press conference imminent

As a gutless Rangers dropped yet more points away to spirited St Mirren, Ibrox media partners Heart & Hand have been responding to claims the Board are preparing a press conference to sack Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

The Dutchman might’ve had terrible luck with injuries this season but the calm and passive coach has been unable to motivate his charges at Champions League or Premiership level this month.

The club has managed to take only four points from a possible nine in Premier League clashes with St Johnstone (L), St Mirren (D) and Livingston (D) in recent weeks to fall nine points behind Celtic in the title race.

Already it looks like it will take a miracle for Rangers to turn things around in the second half of the season with Giovanni van Bronckhorst the man directly in the firing line.

Heart & Hand responds to Rangers board presser rumours

Despite guiding the Gers to a Europa League Final, the Dutch coach’s boring, laboured and uncharismatic football has been a bugbear for fans with performances now heralding the results they deserve.

Rangers are actually lucky to be only nine points behind Celtic with the club’s domestic performances as a whole this season unacceptable, barring a few solid results.

After the 1-1 draw in Paisley, the knives have been well and truly out for the manager with reports claiming Giovanni van Bronckhorst faces a Board showdown this week [STV].

Rumours then began to swirl that the Gers Board are set to call a press conference to sack the Rangers manager tat lunchtime today (14/11) with the unacceptable run of form angering supporters.

Asked about this on social media, Heart & Hand have moved to cool these rumours with the Ibrox club’s media partners claiming that if Rangers are planning something like this, then they haven’t heard about it.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst might be a former player and for all intents and purposes a nice guy, but it’s clear he is overseeing a complete collapse at the club which runs much deeper than just his management.

The squad management of the last few seasons has been very poor with Rangers on the verge of a massive clear-out and losing several key assets for knockdown prices, meaning major investment will be needed to keep pace with Celtic.

It’s been a monumental slide this season and there are very few Rangers fans who don’t want a change in the position, with the likes of one ex-Premier League manager interesting fans.
