After the match, Rangnick insisted his side will fight for the Champions League qualification places while it is still possible. But he refused to speak about the process of appointing a new manager.
Rangnick said: “As long as it is possible mathematically, it is possible. But no matter how likely it might be, it’s our job and our duty, for ourselves and our supporters, for everybody, to do our very best to finish off the season on the best possible note.
“That means now preparing for an away game at Everton, to try to win that. The picture for me is pretty clear [on the managerial situation].
“Not only now but also a couple of weeks ago, and internally, we spoke about that already but there is nothing else I can say at this stage.”
