Rangers drew 1-1 away at Ross County this afternoon,
Rangers' up-and-down campaign continues after they could only draw 1-1 away at the Scottish Premiership's bottom club, Ross County.
After a win for Aberdeen and a draw for Hearts over the weekend, Rangers had lost second place heading into today's game, but knew a win would take them back up to second, only behind Celtic.
It all started so well for Rangers, as Clint Hill headed Mark Warburton's men in front after just eight minutes, with the veteran defender scoring his first goal for the club.
Rangers manager Mark Warburton
However, Ross County – who sit bottom of the Scottish Premiership and had conceded eight goals in the two games prior to facing Rangers – hit back when defender Andrew Davies equalised for Jim McIntyre's men.
Warburton's men, as ever, dominated possession with 55% of the ball, but could only muster four shots on goal as they again failed to turn possession into goals.
Rangers now lie third in the Scottish Premiership, 11 points behind leaders Celtic after playing a game more, and the pressure is mounting on manager Warburton.
Rangers manager Mark Warburton
The former Brentford boss impressed last season by taking Rangers to promotion back to the top flight, but with some patchy results – the Gers have now failed to beat Ross County twice, as well as Kilmarnock and St. Johnstone – some fans want Warburton gone.
Fans took to Twitter after the final whistle on Sunday to suggest that Rangers are going backwards under Warburton, and unless he changes something, he won't be the club's manager next season.
Others think Warburton should go now after a disappointing performance, with one fan even suggesting that he would rather keep Joey Barton and let Warburton go, with Barton an outcast under Warburton following a recent row.
Frank de Boer
A popular name among fans to replace Warburton should he go is Frank de Boer, given that the Dutchman is out of work having been sacked by Inter Milan last week. During his playing career, De Boer made 17 appearances for Rangers and has impressed as a manager, winning four Eredivisie titles in a row with Ajax – but whether he would be willing to drop down to Rangers is another matter, and he'd certainly be an ambitious target for the Gers if Warburton ends up leaving the club, which doesn't look to be immediate despite some shaky performances this season.
Here are some of the reactions from Rangers fans after the 1-1 draw at Ross County...
Fan of warbs and change doesn't always work but how long and were do we go. He s became very hopeful next game will be different not sure— george fry (@gfry19rfc) November 6, 2016
Warburton won't be managing us next season so I hope the board are putting some serious work into finding a replacement.— Scott (@Dotsy1978) November 6, 2016
All Gers fans like Warburton & want him to succeed. But his team is getting worse. He has to change things or he'll be gone for 2017.— John DC Gow (@johndcgow) November 6, 2016
We're an impatient support but we're not stupid. If we saw signs each week of progress then no one would be questioning Warbs...— SDF (@GoodCopBabcock) November 6, 2016
Warbs must go this is no good enough— therangersforum (@therangersforum) November 6, 2016
"Not pleased with performance" says Warbs. Neither are the fans. He needs a kick up the arse. Right out the door #rtid— RRangersburd1872 (@rangersburd1872) November 6, 2016
Finally, Warbs - never learns, every game follows the same pattern, left Forrester out completely again, patience wearing very thin with him— Al (@SashAndWindass) November 6, 2016
Warbs has done his job, got us promoted. He is tactically inept, unadapt able and seemingly blind to glaring recurring problems. He must go.— BlueSmarties (@jamiebear1872) November 6, 2016
Time is up for Warbs - dire!— AVN8 (@NewcoNate) November 6, 2016
This is warbs last season if we continue like this— Will Sloan (@willsloan90) November 6, 2016
This is what the best player at the clubs been shipped out the door for !! A would get rid a warbs before Barton honestly get a new manger— gordonfraser (@gordonfraser15) November 6, 2016
Holding on to a point against the team at the bottom of the league is absolutely disgraceful. It's time for Warbs to go.— Ross McClung (@rossmcclung) November 6, 2016
Times up for me now. Going backwards under Warbs. Change required— Alan Cumming (@meanie1872) November 6, 2016
So I believe Frank de Boer is available... #Rangersfc— Stuart Smith (@StuSmith2012) November 6, 2016
Anybody got Frank De Boer's number?— Battle Fever (@BattleFeverOn) November 6, 2016
Highly doubt financially we'd be able to get Frank De Boer, but that would be the perfect appointment— The Famous (@TheFamousRFC) November 6, 2016
All I'll say is Frank De Boer is out of a job— Chris Black (@CBlack88) November 6, 2016
Do you think it's time for Warburton to go?
