Stephane Mbia feels the players are to blame for Mark Hughes' sacking, believing some of his team-mates did not give their all for the former boss.

Hughes lost his job as Rangers boss in November after no wins in their opening 14 matches saw them prop up the Barclays Premier League, while his replacement Harry Redknapp has so far found victories easier to come by. Wins over Fulham and Chelsea has moved Rangers to within five points off safety.

Mbia is at a loss to explain why they could not register positive results under the previous incumbent, and he told the Daily Mail: "Should the players feel guilty about Mark Hughes' sacking? Yes, I think so. He gave everything for everybody at this club. I think it's the players' fault."
