46-year-old drops Rangers hint as board continue to hunt for Caixinha replacement

With the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern locked in fierce debate as to who exactly should replace Pedro Caixiha in charge of the club, arguments have been frequent. 

As those atop the marble staircase take their sweet time in finding a replacement for the Portuguese, our local Light Blues can’t come to a decision themselves. Indeed, so many names have been linked with a move to Ibrox since his sacking last month, though little has come of any of them right now.

So, with many of our punters unable to come to a unanimous decision, comments made by former Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood to Sky Sports on The Debate have only muddied waters even more. ‘Tactics Tim’ has revealed he would be open to talking to the Gers about their vacancy, having been out of work since leaving his role as director of football at Swindon Town in July.

“Yeah I would consider any job at the moment”, he said of the Rangers gig.

“I will talk to anyone and see if their ambitions meet mine, so yeah certainly.”

Certainly a divisive figure, the 48-year-old would be a big name, though not necessarily the right one for Rangers.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Seeing Sherwood at Ibrox certainly would be an interesting notion. He’d undoubtedly bring more eyes to Scottish football, though whether or not he’d fully understand Rangers is up for debate. If the pressure gets too much for him, it would end terribly.

Too much of a risk.
