This Rangers team are worst in club's history: Martin O'Neill

Martin O'Neill

Former Celtic boss Martin O'Neill has branded the current Rangers team as the "worst side" in the club's history.

Following the sacking of boss Graeme Murty, O'Neill has hit out with some scathing criticism of the squad at Ibrox, claiming they aren't good enough to represent the Glasgow club.

With crucial games still to come against Aberdeen, Hibernian and Kilmarnock to decide the club's European fate, it's going to be a massive few weeks for the Light Blues.

With Steven Gerrard seemingly poised to take the reins, there's an agreed consensus that the former Liverpool captain has a tall order on his hands when he takes over next season.

However, Hoops hero O'Neill, who led the club to seven trophies and a Uefa Cup final appearance in his five years in charge, believes the only way Rangers can go from here is up under the experience of the former Liverpool captain.

"(Gerrard) hasn't got a clue what he's letting himself in for!" the Republic of Ireland manager laughed.

"He has been born and bred in Liverpool, so he must have an idea. But I hope he does. It would be nice to see him.

"I think he would be terrific for Rangers because unquestionably it's the worst side that has ever played for Rangers.

"They are so, so bad. They are worse than bad, they are dreadful. The only way is up for him."
