HITC Sport Breaking News

The chaos is mounting at Rangers as caretaker manager Kenny McDowall has resigned.

With ever increasing financial concerns and animosity from fans, Rangers are once again in a state of chaos - and the situation has worsened tonight.

It's only just over one month since manager Ally McCoist resigned, and now the man who replaced him in caretaker charge, Kenny McDowall, has also quit the Ibrox club.

A statement on the website read: "Kenny McDowall has tendered his resignation as caretaker manager of Rangers Football Club, citing personal reasons for stepping down."

"Kenny, who has been a fantastic servant of the club, will serve his 12-month notice period, during which time he will remain 100% committed to his normal duties."

"The club respects Kenny’s decision and he will continue to have the full support of everybody at Rangers."

With little money available to appoint a replacement, Rangers in full-on chaos mode right now, and with the Old Firm clash against Celtic on the horizon, another resignation is the last thing they needed.

Rangers currently sit second in the Scottish Championship, but are 13 points behind leaders Hearts, with off-field matters taking priority for now.
