McCulloch – off-field woes are no excuse

Have your say

Lee McCULLOCH insists Rangers’ off-field problems are no excuse for poor results on the park as they aim to avoid making history for all the wrong reasons in tomorrow’s Old Firm derby.

The Scottish champions have lost four out of their last six games and defeat to rivals Celtic would mean four losses in a row at Ibrox for the first time in the club’s 140-year history.

The poor run of form coincided with Rangers being plunged into administration last month, with players then subsequently agreeing to wage cuts of as much as 75 per cent to avoid widespread redundancies.

However, McCulloch claims everyone in the dressing room is well aware of their responsibility to deliver results on the park regardless of issues behind the scenes.

He said: “I don’t think we will use it as an excuse or have been using it as an excuse.

“We are paid to play football and that’s what we should concentrate on.”
