As the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern eagerly await some news on the managerial front at long last, all this hanging about has seriously annoyed the punters propping up our bar.
It’s been far from a vintage year for our local Light Blues after seeing Pedro Caixinha struggle in charge of the Gers for just seven months and those drowning their sorrows are nervous about the next appointment. Having seen those atop the marble staircase mess up by appointing the Portuguese in the first place, it’s make-or-break right now.
With that in mind, a report from the Daily Record has proven rather interesting. While they profile former Gers star Henning Berg’s reported interest in job, they reveal that the Rangers board are keen on bringing in a British manager if at all possible.
The likes of Steve McClaren, Tim Sherwood, Derek McInnes and Michael O’Neill have all been touted as potential candidates, though the board are understood to have ‘invited applications’ of late as their hunt for a new boss drags on and on.
McInnes remains the obvious candidate, while Berg would certainly would be a risk. Though he’s done some good work in Poland, his managerial CV isn’t great and he could end up like another Ronny Deila.
