With two wins in a row since the exit of Pedro Caixinha, it was all going so well for the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern of late.
Indeed, without the Portuguese, life had been going swimmingly at Ibrox under the caretaker stewardship of Graeme Murty. While the U20s coach may not be a long-term option, he’s done well enough to steady the ship while the powers that be at Ibrox think long and hard about a new boss.
Well, reports from the Times over the course of the weekend haven’t really indicated that much thinking is going on atop the marble staircase. With former England manager Steve McClaren mooted as a potential candidate, there’s not a huge amount of positive reaction amongst our local Light Blues.
Still, director of football Mark Allen is thought to be a fan of the 56-year-old’s, something that certainly has sparked a reaction on social media.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Rangers fans slated the Allen-McClaren thinking on Twitter.
How is poor McInnes supposed to compete with these 2nd rate signings by Mark Allen? Why won't Rangers spend money and back him?

Clearly Steve McClaren would be Mark Allen choice. Can’t help but think King etc. will want McInnes. I don’t want McClaren.

Mark Allen should be sacked if he's even contacted McLaren
