Rangers’ managerial situation is one that has been dominating conversations in the Transfer Tavern of late and the Express’ latest report that the Gers have whittled down the candidates to a four-man shortlist has got tongues wagging again.
It’s understood that the Scottish heavyweights are eager to rectify the situation at Ibrox soon, with Mark Warburton’s exit last month having left Graeme Murty in charge on a caretaker basis.
Although any official move will wait until after the appointment of a Director of Football at the club, the Express claim that the candidates have been reduced down to a list of four, but fans’ favourite Frank de Boer is not among the quadruple of managers.
Instead, Leeds’ Garry Monk and Derek McInnes of Aberdeen are being considered, as are out-of-work duo Gary Rowett and Alex McLeish.
All four have been discussed at length by chiefs in Glasgow as the club plan to push on next season after an underwhelming return to the Scottish Premiership.
Monk is a particularly interesting name given his Swansea roots, where he played under now Cetic boss Brendan Rodgers, and his brand of attacking football.
With the Whites chasing promotion to the Premier League, he may take some convincing to swap Elland Road for Ibrox.
