It wasn’t the most dignified of exits for the Rangers fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern to watch as manager Mark Warburton departed Ibrox after a stuttering campaign, though they are largely happy the former Brentford chief has gone.
For many of the Gers in the Tavern, ‘Warbs’ failed to truly grasp Scottish football and they all too often had to watch their side fail to perform in the biggest of games, despite their return to the top flight this summer. So, many of the punters in the bar have been talking about potential replacements at Ibrox.
The name seemingly on everyone’s lips here has been a stunning move for former Rangers star Frank De Boer. Currently out of work after being sacked by Inter Milan following an ill-fated spell in charge, the Dutchman would certainly represent somewhat of a coup.
So, reports from the Daily Record have gone down a storm today. Ronald De Boer, who also played at Ibrox alongside his brother, has hinted the former Ajax chief could well be interested in the post, though is not considering talks until April, to have time to buildup to the new campaign.
“Frank won’t go into talk of any approaches, but I know that he is waiting until the end of April”, Ronald told Radio Scotland (via the Daily Record.)
“That is when he will take his decision and see what options are on the table. Then he will choose from them.”
“He wants to make sure he has a good pre-season and knows the players very well, so he would never, for example, take the Rangers job just now.”
While this rumour is likely to run and run and there’s clearly a lot more to it, the Rangers fans here are already dreaming about what the former Barcelona star could do should he arrive back in Scotland.
