Though it’s been far from a vintage year for the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern thus far, the fact that the Pedro Caixinha era is finally over is enough cause for celebration right now. He was simply that unpopular.
Indeed, our local Light Blues are hoping the board get this appointment right, having made a complete mess of the Mark Warburton succession. With that in mind, reports from the Daily Record have proven really rather interesting on the managerial hunt front.
According to their report, the Gers could land Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes AND his assistant Tony Docherty for a relatively low fee. With the Dons chief strongly touted for a move to Ibrox, it’s understood that he and his assistant would cost Rangers just £800k in compensation.
Director of football Mark Allen is thought to be compiling a short list of potential options to fill the dugout’s void to present to the board and McInnes certainly is the popular choice amongst the punters propping up our bar.
Pay the money. Why not? To land a man who understand Rangers and what it means to people, as well as weaken a bitter rival, it just makes total sense.
McInnes would whip this squad into serious shape and bring the Gers a lot closer to Celtic, having proven himself time and time again at Pittodrie.
