The Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern just want something sorted on the managerial front as soon as humanly possible. Indeed, some of our resident Gers are even joking that Pedro Caixinha’s reign was better than this.
After two dismal losses on the bounce, our local Light Blues are venting their frustration at the board for not moving quicker when it comes to bringing in a replacement for the Portuguese. With that in mind, an update from Paddy Power has gone down well in the bar tonight.
In some quarters at least.
The bookmakers have revealed on their official website that they have SUSPENDED betting on the idea that Alex McLeish could return to Ibrox, eleven years after leaving. The 58-year-old was linked with the role earlier this year after the exit of Mark Warburton and was reportedly backed in at 6/1 yesterday morning, before Paddy Power pulled the plug on that market.
“We’ve seen big cash for Alex McLeish to return to Rangers – which is the opposite of what he’ll see should he take the job”, said a spokesman.
“After weeks of stagnation, it’d be pretty underwhelming for the Gers to appoint someone who was already out of work, but that would at least be in keeping with the way the club is run.”
