A good end to the week was made even better for the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern after the first-team thumped rivals Heart of Midlothian just days after the sacking of almost universally unpopular manager, Pedro Caixinha.
Hopefully for the Gers in our bar, that era is over now after a pretty much miserable seven months under his stead and claims from the Daily Record have proven rather interesting as a result. According to their report, top brass at Ibrox won’t rush a move for Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes, while Michel Preud’homme is reportedly not a target.
The former is thought to be a target though a move to bring the former Light Blues midfielder back to Glasgow is not said to be imminent, while the latter is understood to be keen but is not being seriously considered by those atop the marble staircase.
Indeed, director of football Mark Allen is believed to be drawing up a list of potential targets and taking a considered approach, though a meeting with Pittodrie chairman Stewart Milne is reported to have been scheduled this week in regards to McIness.
For Rangers fans, it’s surely nice to see the club taking a considered approach to their new appointment. The decision to bring Caixinha was so strange, they need to be very clever in who replaces him, or face falling even further behind their rivals.
