Rangers supporters were despondent and deflated in the Transfer Tavern this weekend after seeing their side lose 2-0 at home to Hamilton in the Scottish Premiership, in turn suffering their first defeat under caretaker boss Graeme Murty.
The former Reading and Southampton defender stepped in following the departure of manager Pedro Caixinha at the end of October, and led the Gers to two victories in his opening two matches to somewhat steady the ship at Ibrox. Yet the 43-year-old oversaw his first loss in interim charge as goals from David Templeton and Darren Lyon secured a deserved 2-0 win for Martin Canning’s side, which in turn moved them up to seventh and saw fourth place Rangers fall nine points adrift of league leaders Celtic.
Subsequently, there has been many disappointed and frustrated Gers fans in the Tavern in recent days, many of whom are beginning to get restless at the club’s inability to appoint a successor to Caixinha almost a month on from his departure.
Yet several Rangers supporters have taken to Twitter to throw another name into the ring, namely former West Brom boss Tony Pulis, who was relieved of his duties at the Hawthorns earlier today.
The 59-year-old had overseen a woeful run of just two Premier League victories in 21 matches prior to his sacking on Monday, with the final nail in the coffin a 4-0 defeat at home to champions Chelsea at the weekend.
And many Gers fans are calling on the club to bring the former Stoke City and Crystal Palace chief to Ibrox…
Give it to Pulis

Tony Pulis ……. top pedigree, a scrapper, sets teams up hard to break down or beat……. he could be a perfect fit at Rangers

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Tony Pulis is exactly the type of manager Rangers need right now.
