With a vacant gig going at Ibrox, the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern really are eager to see a successor brought to the club as a replacement for Pedro Caixinha.
Indeed, our local Light Blues are hoping the board get this one right after messing up with the Portuguese, though reports from the Herald do little to excite the punters propping up our bar. They claim Steve McClaren has sent his CV to the Glasgow giants, making a major play for the job.
The former England manager is understood to be keen on rebuilding his reputation on these shores and is reportedly known to director of football, Mark Allen. Currently working over in Israel, the 56-year-old would be free to come to Scotland and is thought to be happy working on a lower wage than he did during his time in the Premier League.
While he’s previously been regarded as a very good coach, a difficult few years in charge of the Three Lions, Newcastle United and Derby County barely has our resident Gers in an excitable mood.
How can this be seen as a good idea? The Rangers job comes with an awful lot of pressure, something McClaren failed to deal with in charge of England or Newcastle. If the board are looking to get the fans on side, this really would be a poor move.
