Watch: Rangers Caretaker Manager Seemingly Loses His Mind On The Touchline

Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty took the touchline today following the sacking of Mark Warburton and was, as the Daily Record described, "a bundle of energy and frustration" as he watched his side fall 2-1 to Dundee.

Managerless 'Gers are now 30 points behind champions Celtic and six behind Aberdeen in third place.

There was hope for Murty and the travelling Rangers contingent when Joe Garner reduced the 2-0 deficit at Dens Park, but a spurned opportunity from Harry Forrester - who shot high and wide from six yards - sent his caretaker boss into, well, orbit apparently, as Murty produced one of the most bizarre and acrobatic manoeuvres ever produced on a touchline.

It's probably fair to say things went tits up for him.

Good Lord.

The former Southampton defender said at full-time:

It was really disapointing.

(Note: this was about Rangers' overall performance, and not his handstand).

We challenged the players at half-time to show more. They did show more, but I said to them we can't wait until half-time. It has to be there from the get-go.

The players understand what the demands of this football club are and they understand that they're out there to be met.

It's the players who have to take care of business on the football pitch, first, last and always.

It's fair to say I'm very, very disappointed with how this [first league] game has gone.

Of course, there was plenty of sympathy for the stand-in Rangers boss.
