Gers must deliver for McCall, warns Lee McCulloch

By Andy Newport

Rangers skipper Lee McCulloch has told his out-of-contract team-mates they had better start performing for Stuart McCall - because their previous displays are not worth new deals.

The former Motherwell boss was drafted in to replace Kenny McDowall for the final 11 games of the season on Thursday as Gers' new board tries to salvage their faltering promotion bid.

McCall will make his bow as Rangers manager when they face Livingston at home on Saturday and become the club's third manager this season, following McDowall and McCoist - both of whom are still being paid by the club during notice periods.

McCulloch admits the weekend line-up could be vastly different to the one which limped to a lame 1-1 draw with Queen of the South in the Championship on Tuesday.

The captain is one of 12 players who will be free to leave come the summer and so far, he claims none deserve to stay.

McCulloch said: "I definitely get the impression that no one is guaranteed to play and that is a good thing. It will be a clean slate.

"Stuart knows a lot of the players so we will wait and see what happens. But it gives a good opportunity to the lads who haven't been playing to give him ideas."
