Reported Rangers target ‘expected to leave’ as talks ramps up

With the Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern locked in debate in regards to who should take over from Pedro Caixinha, the punters propping up our bar are on the verge of an argument. As you can imagine, there are some big debates amongst our local Light Blues.

There have been so many names touted with a move to Ibrox since the departure of the universally unpopular Portuguese, with Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neil amongst them. Interesting enough, a report from the Daily Mail suggests his future could be away from Windsor Park.

They claim the 48-year-old is ‘expected to leave’ his role in charge of his nation after their World Cup Play-Off exit at the hands of Switzerland earlier this week. Despite that failure, he did take them to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals and has been linked with a move to Rangers, in what would be an interesting appointment.

Though he did impress with Northern Ireland, O’Neil lacks club experience and the Scottish FA are also believed to be keen on talking to him as a potential replacement for Gordon Strachan.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Few would doubt the fact that O’Neil is a good manager, though perhaps Rangers is just too big a job for him right now. The team isn’t settled and, given the gap between them and Celtic, it could just be too much for him.

Thoughts?
