Rangers: Mark McDougall slams Giovanni van Bronckhorst over ‘sackable’ form

Rangers: Mark McDougall slams Giovanni van Bronckhorst over ‘sackable’ form -Rangers News

Rangers’ Premiership form in 2022 has been ‘sackable’ for Giovanni van Bronckhorst, according to Football Scotland journalist Mark McDougall. 

The lowdown

Rangers slipped up at home on Sunday, spurning an opportunity to close the gap on the league leaders.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side could have moved to within a point of their Glasgow arch-rivals after they were held to a goalless draw against Hibernian earlier in the day, but the Light Blues let a two-goal lead slip against Motherwell at Ibrox.

Rangers have also dropped points against Aberdeen (1-1), Ross County (3-3), Celtic (3-0) and Dundee United (1-1) in 2022.

The latest

McDougall pointed out in a tweet on Sunday evening that Rangers had only won three of the eight league games they had played since the turn of the year.

He stated: “Rangers have played eight league games in 2022 and won three of them. That’s sackable form at any club in the top six let alone Rangers.”

The verdict

Van Bronckhorst will have earned plenty of goodwill by leading his side to victory against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League play-off round. That 6-4 aggregate win was hailed as a ‘monumental scalp’ by BBC Sport.

They might well fancy their chances of beating Red Star Belgrade and advancing to the last eight in Europe, but it’s not looking as rosy on the domestic front.

Questions must be asked as to whether Rangers have the mettle for the Premiership title race given the nature of some of these setbacks. For instance, they twice led against Ross County, who are towards the bottom of the table, before conceding an equaliser in the 96th minute, and they were blitzed by Celtic in the first half of the Old Firm derby a month ago.

On Sunday, they knew they had a chance to crank up the pressure but folded when a championship-calibre team would have been expected to exert control, especially at home.
