KRIS BOYD reckons his old club Rangers are bereft of a plan or direction as Steven Gerrard continues to be linked to Ibrox manager’s job.
Caretaker boss Graeme Murty, who quit the club this morning, watched in agony as the team were taken apart by Celtic on Sunday as the Hoops raced to a 5-0 win on their way to picking up their seventh successive title.
It was the Govan outfit’s third devastating loss to the champions in recent weeks, following the 3-2 league defeat Ibrox in March and last month’s 4-0 Scottish Cup Final walloping at Hampden.
Boyd, who will face the Gers at Ibrox on Saturday, said: “Six months ago you are trying to get Derek McInnes, tried and tested in Scotland, knows the game inside out, and six months later you are away down the road trying to get a youth coach.
“No disrespect to Gerrard, but at this moment in time that’s what he is.

“I don’t think there is a clear direction or plan of where the club wants to go. It seems as if they are trying to grab everything to see if what you grab works rather than having a plan, a structure.

“I still don’t know what Mark Allen is doing. It would be interesting to see what’s gone on in there with him.

“I think the Rangers fans would want to know exactly what’s going on.

“If you are the director of football and you try to bring in a manager who has been over the course and distance, knows exactly what is going on in Scotland, then all of a sudden you are going to Liverpool to take their youth coach. It doesn’t add up.

“There needs to be a plan and direction and at just now I don’t think anybody knows.”

Boyd, 34, is looking to add to his 23 goals this season when he returns to Ibrox at the weekend.

 He added: “I have not really been one for setting targets because I think you can only disappoint yourself.
“As a striker, you want to score as many as you can so I will go to there looking to score.”
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers yesterday slammed the Ibrox outfit for the way they had treated stand-in gaffer Murty, as reported in Scotzine yesterday.
