Mark Allen delivered another name as Rangers up hunt for new boss

The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern are absolutely fuming right now. Though the exit of Pedro Caixinha had sparked excitement as the club looked for a new dawn, recent links with former England manager Steve McClaren have seriously annoyed our punters. 

Considering the divisive nature of the 56-year-old, it would barely be the most inspiring appointment. So, at least reports from the Herald have proven rather interesting as they take their collective minds off of the potential arrival of Steve McClaren.

Indeed, according to them, former Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is keen on a move to Ibrox. The Uruguayan boss recently left Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua and is thought to have had his name put forward to Director of Football, Mark Allen.

Poyet would be a slightly left-field name, though perhaps not as risky a one as Caixinha was. Having played in England for seven years with Chelsea and Tottenham, the 49-year-old also boasts experience in working for both the Black Cats and Brighton.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Perhaps Poyet could get the best out of some of the Latin players to have been brought to Ibrox of late. With so much money wasted on them during the summer, they really need someone to get the best from them.

Thoughts?
