Managerial target mulling over future as Rangers’ hunt for new boss continues

Life amongst the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern has been rather stressful of late. Indeed, the punters propping up our bar are so concerned about exactly who takes over from Pedro Caixinha, having seen the board mess up before. 

As you can imagine, our resident Gers are locked in debate as to who should be given the job at Ibrox and reports from the Daily Telegraph have certainly shed more light on that very matter. According to their report, the Light Blues are keen on a move for Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neil.

The 48-year-old has impressed in charge of his country after leading them to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals, though fell just short of taking them to next summer’s World Cup. With his future up in the air, the Glasgow giants are understood to be keen on him, along with the Scottish national team.

O’Neil will reportedly take a few days to consider his future in charge of his country and his potential arrival at Rangers certainly has proved divisive. Undoubtedly a good manager, O’Neil lacks experience at club level, especially one such as Rangers.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

O’Neil may not be the most popular arrival at Rangers. The board at Ibrox need the fans onside after the failed Caixinha experiment, so perhaps steering clear of the Northern Ireland boss would be a better idea.
