KRIS BOYD reckons Rangers have ‘massive problems ahead’ as they look to recover from their Scottish Cup heartache and finish second in the Premiership.

Graeme Murty’s side were beaten 4-0 at Hampden on Sunday as their final chance of silverware this term was killed off.

The Gers are in a three-way battle with Aberdeen and Hibernian to be best of the rest behind Celtic in the top flight.

Boyd said: “Rangers caused their own problems. I don't get their formation at the start of the game.

“When you have the amount of bodies they do in the middle of the pitch you want to show them in the pitch. Rangers were showing them out.

“The wingers should have been outside and showing them inside into the congested area. I don't get what Rangers were doing today.

"Take nothing away from Celtic, they were outstanding from start to finish, but I think Rangers have got massive problems ahead…I don't quite see where Rangers are going.

“Nobody is going to look back and say, 'Oh well done Graeme Murty finished second'. You want a trophy. Rangers have now got a challenge to finish second."

Rangers have just five post-split fixtures left this term before they can consign another unsuccessful campaign to the history books.

But former striker Boyd reckons it will be a huge summer on and off the park for the Light Blues.

He said: “It is no coincidence that the season tickets will be out for sale next week or the following week is it?

“It is this time of the season yet again. Dave King always seems to open his mouth and let everybody hear that he is still around and everything.

“They have brought in a Director of Football. What is his role? What is he actually doing at this football club?

“As it stands right now, the players that Rangers have got are on loan, they will be going back to their clubs and there is a rebuilding process to go through.

“You have already lost David Bates, you have already lost Danny Wilson, so where do they go from here?”
