LEE WALLACE has made a plea to the Rangers board to appoint a new manager as quickly as possible.

The Ibrox skipper reckons it’s crucial a successor to Mark Warburton is in place before their campaign is left in tatters.

The 2-1 defeat from Caley Thistle on Friday night has left them nine points behind second-placed Aberdeen, 1-0 victors over Ross County yesterday, in the Premiership. 

With St Johnstone visiting Ibrox on Wednesday before a Scottish Cup quarter-final against Hamilton Accies on Saturday, the international left-back admits they need someone to take charge.

Interim boss Graeme Murty has lost both his league games since taking charge and when asked whether the board need to act swiftly to appoint a new manager, Wallace said: “That would certainly be the approach a lot of people would want.

“To get a manager in, so he could give himself this period to assess how he’s going to put a structure in place to move the team and the club forward.

“There’s a lot of noise about a Director of Football, as well. But, hopefully, the progress is quick and it happens sooner rather than later.”
