Glasgow Rangers: Fans hammer Jamie O’Hara over comments about the ‘Gers - Rangers News

A number of Glasgow Rangers fans hit out at Jamie O’Hara after comments made by the pundit and former English Premier League midfielder about the Ibrox club.

The 33-year-old told talkSPORT that it is “a bigger job” to manage Bournemouth than the ‘Gers and also claimed that the Cherries are “a higher profile football team”, adding that Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard would be better served by succeeding the recently-unemployed Eddie Howe at the southern English outfit following their relegation from the Premier League than staying in Glasgow.

From whom did Glasgow Rangers sign Brian Laudrup?

As per @talkSPORT, O’Hara said: “I wouldn’t want to disrespect the Rangers people because they are a huge football club but it’s a bigger job to potentially be the Bournemouth manager. Rangers are a huge, huge football club but for me there’s only two clubs in Scotland.

“With Bournemouth, they’ve just dropped out of the Premier League, to get them back into the Premier League, they are a higher profile football team. I would take the Bournemouth job, it’s a bigger job.”

The ‘Gers are the most successful club in Scotland in terms of league titles won, with 54 to their name, while they are also competing in the last 16 of the Europa League this week. Bournemouth’s promotion to the Premier League in 2015 was the first time ever getting to the top flight in England, having been put into administration and narrowly avoided relegation from the Football League six years previously (as per BBC).

Also, while the ‘Gers routinely draw almost 50,000 fans on average to home games, the Cherries had average attendances of little more than 10,000 at their 11,329-capacity Vitality Stadium while in the Premier League.
