FORMER Celtic skipper Alan Stubbs has warned the Ibrox board they are only one more blunder away from gifting his old club 10 titles in a row.
The English centre-half was part of Wim Jansen’s side that derailed Walter Smith’s outfit as they attempted to emulate othe Hoops’ nine in a row under Jock Stein 20 years earlier.
As the champions surge towards the magnificent seven, Stubbs insisted it will all depend on the Govan hierarchy’s next move on the managerial front.
The Govan men have already got it spectacularly wrong with Mark Warburton and Pedro Caixinha before handing the job to caretaker Graeme Murty, Dave King and Co are hunting a long-term appointment.
Stubbs said: “The manager decision is critical, it has to come from above. They’re getting the most important decisions wrong. Rangers have two years to get it right.
“They got Caixinha wrong and spent a lot of money on players.
“Whoever comes in, whether it’s a British or a foreign manager, it’s got to be right. They can’t afford to get this wrong.
“Rangers have to be more of a threat. Celtic haven’t reached the heights of last season and could still win the league by 15 to 18 points and that’s not good.
“Celtic will strengthen in the summer. They’re looking at Europe, they know they’re so far ahead domestically and they’ll look at two or three players of real quality.”
