After just scraping past Morton in the Scottish Cup, the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been talking about the state of the club Mark Warburton has left them in as they look forward to a future without him.
The Gers saw their under-fire boss depart Ibrox in bizarre circumstances over the course of the weekend and, while it’s not quite clear what exactly happened yet, it’s obvious they will soon be on the lookout for a new boss. Naturally, the bar has been full of talk amongst the punters as to who exactly should take the reins, though comments made to Sky Sports by former chief Alex McLeish have provoked debate.
Speaking as a pundit for their Scottish Cup tie, the 58-year-old hinted he would be open to the idea of a return and the Daily Express suggest the former Aston Villa and Hibernian manager is favourite on a short-term basis.
“You never know, this is purely coincidence me being here today”, he told Sky (via the Daily Express.)
“Obviously there’s a lot of speculation. At the moment there’s nothing I can update you on.
“I’m a Rangers man so you obviously have to keep that in consideration. When you get asked to join a club like Rangers it’s obviously a hard offer to turn down.”
Having led Rangers to two Scottish Premiership crowns, McLeish is a popular figure amongst our drinkers and they are hoping he returns to Glasgow.
